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.

winger.pngThe Winger weblog, based in the United States, is looking for a few contemporary dancers to join the mix of contributors to their dance blog about the behind the scenes goings on in this most troubled of professions.

The blog was started by New York City Ballet dancer Kristin Sloane and uses a mixture of text, photos and - sometimes - video material to tell the world at large what the dance profession is like when viewed from the wings, hence the name.

At present the contributors are from the ballet side of dance so Kristin is looking for contributions from the contemporary side of things. This being the internet you don't have to be based in the USA or even have access to your own computer - a web cafe will suffice - a digital camera would also be a bonus and who doesn't have one of those these days?

The dance blogging scene is growing - all too slowly for our liking - so if you're feeling the need to write about what you do for a living then pop along to The Winger and drop them an email to get things going.
