Rosie Kay Dance Company 'Supernova'
For those of you that don't know a 'Supernova' occurs when stars (the planetary objects not those losers from American Idol), explode as they collapse in on themselves because they've used up all their fuel and there's nothing left but to go BANG! Rosie Kay Dance Company provide the explosions!

Jasmin Vardimon Co. 'Yesterday'
Jasmin Vardimon Company takes the record for the most video features on Article19 (five if you're keeping count). The company's latest work keeps up a strong track record of outstanding dance making and the best collection of dancers currently in the wild.

MKT Raw 2008
It's that time of year again as MKT Raw 2008. MKT is short for Milton Keynes Theatre but that's about as catchy as something that's not really very catchy at all

Bare Bones 'In Action'
The title of the show isn't all that but Bare Bones are back for version 6 of their campaign keep dancing as square as possible, meaning the shape of the performance space!

Rosie Kay Dance Company 'Double Points:K'
Rosie Kay Dance Company have followed a slightly unusual path to creating this work. 'Double Points: K' takes it's inspiration from another piece of work by Dutch dance maker Emio Greco. That work, entitled 'Double Points: Two', was created several years ago and performed alongside this piece at the festival.

Akram Khan Company 'Bahok'
One of the UK's best known dance makers comes to Article19 with 'bahok' a show created in collaboration with the National Ballet of China, and it's not often you get to work with those guys. The show follows the theme...

Gravity and Levity
This time out with their new work 'Shift' the company bring us one of the most complicated set designs we have ever seen. The on-stage rigging has more ropes and pulleys than the Cutty Sark, at least until it caught fire that is (the boat not the G&L set!)

ACE Dance and Music 'Letlalo'
'Letlalo', choreographed by Vincent Mantsoe, features about 5 minutes of gentle adage work and 30 minutes of hard core dancing performed at full speed by the cast of six dancers. Work for the faint of heart this is not!

Pair Dance 'Silent Steps'
The recent Big Mission Festival that took place in Swindon last week is living proof that the festival circuit is the best place to look for new hidden gems from dance makers.

It's predictable isn't it? Last year we brought you Verve 07 and this year we bring you Verve 08. The endless mysteries of the the randomness of the universe shattered by a writer who never was very good at writing the introductions to video features! (you don't say? Ed!)

Hofesh Shechter 'Uprising'
There is very little in the way of press information for 'Uprising' and after you watch the show you realise there doesn't really need to be any.

Jean Abreu 'Dialogo'
'Dialogo' means Dialogue and this work was one of several solo pieces on show at the British Dance Edition. Although strictly speaking it's not a solo since Mr Abreu appears on stage with his musician Attab Hoddad throughout the piece.

Ballet Lorent 'Designer Body'
From left field comes a performance you would never expect and on some levels looks like it was designed to test the stamina of the dancers to their absolute limits.

Jonathan Lunn Co. 'Self Assembly'
'Self Assembly' is the beginnings of a much larger piece and if this small segment is anything to go by then were in for a treat when the thing finally gets finished.

New Art Club 'The Visible Men'
If you like your dance with virtuoso physicality then New Art Club is not for you. Tom Roden and Pete Shenton have made an entire repertoire of work being as anti-virtuoso as possible. 'The Visible Men' is an hour long show featuring a lot more of the duo's stand-up/contemporary dance routine.

Often there are times when you go to the theatre for a show and feel a little short changed because all you got was one or two pieces of work and not a lot else. Not so with Probe however who put on no fewer than seven individual works for their evening of dance.

Liz Lea 'Quicksliver'
Liz Lea's 'Quicksliver' is the second of our featured solo works from BDE 08. Often times the solo can be a hit and miss affair usually because the work goes on way to long. 'Quicksliver' does the job right though by keeping the length, pacing and performance at just the right levels.

Stephanie Schober 'Newly'
When we hear that a dance work is going to be performed in silence we, here in TheLab™, become just a little bit wary. Music, for us, is so intrinsically linked to a choreographic piece of work it's a bit like taking the engine out of a Ferrari and getting excited about pushing it around.
