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.

Here in TheLab™ it is cold, very cold, even the giant rats are complaining about the lack of heat. Since it costs an arm and a leg, literally, to turn on the wood burning stove we shall warm ourselves with thoughts of the past.

This summer Article19 was responsible for covering the 'Forbidden A Tale of Love and War' outdoor performance in Herefordshire, which is a real place, in the South West of England.

Created by dance maker Helen Parlor the work told the story of two lovers who, being a bit dim-witted, drowned in a river while trying to escape their feuding families. Not before doing a lot of larking about in Goodrich Castle though, as illustrated by this super summer dance show.

We remember it fondly. It was warm, it was outside and it was in a giant castle. The only way to spend the summer! Photos and a video documentary below. Send spare blankets and logs for the fire to the usual address.

Anybody sending us a dvd of a fire burning will be looked upon with sympathy and scorn in equal measure!
