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.

If you're looking to kick off the new year with some dance making from the freshest dance makers the world has to offer then look no further than Resolution 08 which gets underway tomorrow in London.
For the next two months, three acts a night, except Sundays, will offer 15-20 minute works at the Robin Howard Theatre. The standard of the works you will see is going to vary wildly so the only advice we can offer here is choose wisely. Just so we can be fair were not going to recommend any particular evening over any other. With 117 different works on show there is plenty to choose from and there are special ticket offers available from the theatre to keep the potentially astronomical cost down a little.
The Place's website offers minimal details about each show and there is no video to speak of, at least not that we could find. They do have a reminder service though which will, presumably, send you an email to let you know that you've missed the show you were planning on seeing.
A lot of the companies taking part in Resolution will disappear forever after the festival is over, through lack of support more than anything else, so catch them while you can. Drop us a line if you see anything good.
Resolution 08 rund from January 3rd to February 28th in London.
