2Faced Dance 'Still Breathing'
We have seen many times an attempt to fuse together street/break dancing and contemporary work into a recognisable show. Most of the time it fails for one reason or another, has 2Faced Dance figured out the magic formula?

Tilted Productions 'Trapped'
Maressa Von Stockert is not a dance maker to be trifled with. Ms Stockert can craft a movement, write a line or two and direct some of the best dance/physical theatre around and all before lunch, so be careful.

Lost Dog 'The Rain Parade'
The end of the world is not going to be pretty. Finding a parking space is going to be a lot easier but on the whole things are going to be rather unpleasant, especially if you like social networking or doing anything that involves more than two people!

The average hard-core dance maker has more than enough trouble making work that will engage the imagination of a regular, skeptical adult.

Sometimes when you go to the theatre to see some new work all you're really looking for is the opportunity to see someone enjoying their craft. We often use the term "dance maker" on Article19. We like it because it suggest to us, here in TheLab™, people diligently working to piece together movement, phrase by phrase like a Swiss watchmaker building a Tag-Heur.

Mad Dogs Dance Theatre
With a name like Mad Dogs Dance Theatre you can throw out any expectations of demure, wafty dance making. 'Beast' is a good old fashion throw back to the days of Euro Crash, when choreography was, to be blunt, just a little bit brutal.

Candoco Dance Company kick off 2009 with their new works by Hofesh Shechter and Nigel Charnock. An Interesting mix of the new and old, a bit of calming chaos versus the slightly unhinged!
