Video - Panta Rei Danseteater 'Lullaby'

Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

Amid all this political talk and Jeremy "grim reaper" Hunt trying very hard to undo 15 years of progress there is still a lot of arts activity going on, especially in the dance world.

The summer months are usually quiet as most of the touring companies are sleeping and storing up their energy for the autumn season.

Not so in Manchester however as Urban Moves makes ready for its biannual outing of outdoor dancing that is Urban Moves.

Every single show is outdoors which might seem a little bit crazy in this country but what the hell, let's go for the burn, or the rain, whichever comes first.

Urban Moves features a number of companies from all over Europe including, in no particular order, Circodelia (Spain), Company Decalage (UK), Etant Donne (France), Motionhouse (UK), Gravity and Levity (UK) and a whole lot more.

The festival runs for three days from Friday 23rd of July and everything, absolutely everything, is completely free, this is a one time offer.

Article19 will be in attendance and we're hoping to bring you some video from the festival real soon.
