Meet our new Media Intern!

Thank you to everyone who applied for our paid media internship! Happy to announce, our 2018 intern will be Lucia Fortune-Ely. Lucia is a Third Year Geography undergraduate currently at the University of Bristol. Having danced from a young age, Lucia is an alumna of the National Youth Dance Company and the Centre for Advanced Training at London Contemporary Dance School. Now nearing the end of her academic studies, she is interested in arts management, administration and combining her interests of geography, philosophy and politics in the creative arts. Lucia will join us during the making of 'Puzzle Creature' at Swindon Dance from next week!

Hello everyone! I am really excited to be a part of the team this summer! As both a geography student and a dancer I am incredibly intrigued about this piece, how the physical body can architect space, co-constructing it through affectual experiences. I very much look forward to documenting your new creation through a social media campaign, so expect me to be milling about the studio!

Happy International Piano Day!

Part of our recent sold out Wild Card event at Sadler's Wells, Sebastian Reynolds has put together this special, vinyl only mix of piano and piano related music for your ears! The mix features works from master composers such as Erik Satie, John Cage and Olivier Messiaen alongside tuned percussion music from Thailand and Bali, and modern electronic acts Colleen and Aphex Twin. Enjoy! 

Introducing Mahajanaka

We're super happy to be working in collaboration with Oxford based composer Sebastian Reynolds and the award winning Thai dance artist Pichet Klunchun on an evening of live traditional Thai music and dance, with a modern, contemporary twist! Informed by research trips to Bangkok exploring Jataka mythology in contemporary Thailand and subsequent studio time with our collaborative team at DanceXchange we're now into the final phase of development as we produce 'Mahajanaka' a retelling of a traditional Jataka tale. There will be a few opportunities to find out more about this international project kicking off at the Ashmolean Museum on the 15th February (12.30 - 1.30 in the lecture room - free to attend).
