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.

No news is, well, no news at all really. There has been a drought of dance related goings on in the last couple of months as you can probably tell from the oh so few stories appearing in this section of your favourite dance writings (this is your favourite right?)
It's not that there is nothing going on in dance per se, just that there is not much going on beyond the good old process story. In case you don't know, a process story is more or less about re-writing a press release to give you some tidbit of information that may or may not be of very little interest. We are not fans of the process story here in The Lab although we do run them from time to time.
So in the spirit of keeping you informed here is a list (stop groaning at the back) of features we have coming up over the next couple of weeks and we'll try and dig up some actual news for you.
Motionhouse: A video interview with Kevin Finna, AD of the company, and some brand new footage from the new cast of 'Perfect' which will bow out for good next month when the company begin work on their new show, 'Driven,' for launch next year.
Retina: A first time video appearance for the company with 'Eleven stories for the body, distance to our soul'. Not a title that copywriters with a short headline space will love writing but there you go.
Steve Bird: Music feature, as always with a couple of tracks, from the prolific, Newcastle based musician. Steve creates music for dance, film, clubs and anything else that may just require a bit of music.
EDge: The graduate company of London Contemporary Dance School are performing a plethora of new works here in the North and we will bring you some chatter from a couple of the dancers and a hefty look at the skills of a new generation of graduates coming to a contemporary company near you.
As well as all that expect our usual stuff from the Imp, Editorials, Features and much more including something very very special which we can't talk about yet so don't ask!
