A festival by Yorkshire Dance exploring how we can dance to a sustainable future.
The climate emergency is increasingly understood as the biggest challenge we face. Artists of all disciplines have been making iconic work in response to this crisis globally for decades, however dance has not been leading the way. With this small festival Yorkshire Dance asks how dance helps us to move forward, digest science and find solutions? How does it shape hope within this complex problem and or provides us with new experiences, encounters and insight?
Yorkshire Dance has worked with an exceptional group of artists and academics as co-curators to help shape the focus of this week, which includes talks, workshops, films and performances that explore dance and sustainability.
All events are pay as you feel. Programme highlights include:
- ES Morgan’s performance: Mum, I’m in the fourth dimension, see!
- Vanessa Grass Audio workshop Branching Dialogues
- Ben Skinner’s hands on family friendly workshop Material Encounters
- The Little Watersprite family focussed performance and workshop series by Sophie Nüzel
- Various amazing talks with artists, activists and scientists including Rita Marcalo, Suba Subramaniam and Sivan Rubinstein
- There is also an amazing film programme featuring work a variety of talented dancers and producers.
