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.

Ludus are currently in the process of creating a new project called 'Trapped'. The difference between this project and others is the fact that they are attempting complete online documentation of the process using video and podcasting!
It is fairly rare in dance that you see something like this being done so for that we applaud them. Podcasting is especially under-utilised by the dance profession, you can even subscribe to it with iTunes! The project publicity blurb say's of the project;
"TRAPPED tells the story of a young girl and her mother caught in a life ruled by routine where the mother spends long hours at work and the daughter at home, alone.
One day, the mother fails to return home. The daughter sets off on a journey filled with extreme emotions, where if she is to succeed in finding her mother, she must learn to negotiate this terrifying, and at times seductive terrain. TRAPPED is choreographed by Rosie Kay one of this country’s finest, exciting and fresh new talents."
The website itself is fairly risible in design terms but if they keep it up and manage to document the entire project then we'll call it a win for dance.
If you don't know what Podcasting is then wake up at the back and do a Google (and a Yahoo for balance).
