Merseyside Dance Initiative has announced the companies that will be taking part in British Dance Edition 2008 (BDE) in Liverpool. The festival will feature 36 companies, some new some old, from across the UK in the festival aimed at promoting British Dance.
The companies participating are as follows (take a deep breath):
balletLORENT; Bare Bones; Bonachela Dance Company; Candoco Dance Company; Ch4pter; Colin Poole; Echo Echo Dance Theatre; Henri Oguike Dance Company; Hofesh Shechter; Impact Dance; Jasmin Vardimon Company; Jean Abreu Dance Company; Jonathan Lunn Dance Company; Liz Agiss; Liz Lea Dance; Lost Dog; Marc Rees; Mark Bruce Company; Mark Edward & Company; Movement Angol; New Art Club; Probe; Protein Dance; Qasim Riza Shaheen; Retina Dance Company; Richard Alston Dance Company; Ricochet Dance Productions; Russell Maliphant Dance Company; Scottish Dance Theatre; Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company; Stammer; Tabula Rasa Dance Company; Tanja Raman; Tilted Productions; Two Dancers; Vincent Dance Theatre and Wired Aerial Theatre.
Unlike other festivals BDE is targeted primarily at promoters so tickets for some shows will be hard to come by. There are two evenings of triple bills at Livepool's large Empire Theatre featuring Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company, Hofesh Shechter, Richard Alston Dance Company, Russell Maliphant Dance Company, Scottish Dance Theatre and Henri Oguike Dance Company on January 31st and February 2nd. The size of the venue should make securing tickets a lot easier.
You can read comprehensive details about the festival on their website, tickets for some events can be booked online.
British Dance Edition 2008 runs from January 30th until February 2nd in Liverpool.
