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.

Article19 is delighted to announce....... ok, maybe really pleased to announce, the launch of The Core which has nothing to do with the crazy film where people tunnelled to the centre of the Earth to save mankind, again!

No, this Core is all about information, dance information. If you are new to the game then finding companies, agencies and venues to focus your attention on can be a bit difficult.

There are lots of lists around, some good, some bad, but we've done things in a slightly different way using maps and little pins, it's all very hi-tec, sort of.

Basically we have organised each category (dance companies, dance agencies and venues) on a UK wide map. Clicking on the little pins brings up the basic contact info on each organisation. You can then click on "core information" and get a little bit more detail, those details depend on the type of organisation you seek wisdom on.

For venues we've colour coded them into small-scale, medium-scale and large-scale, as well as a special category for multi-scale, venues that have more than one theatre or performance space inside their cavernous innards. That should make it easy for you to target the right venue.

The information is by no means comprehensive and it's not supposed to be. It just gives you the "core" information you need to get in touch with your company of choice, hence the name, clever huh? (it's all kinds of genius, get on with it! Ed!)

Here in TheLab™ we're not claiming that this is a comprehensive list either, especially for the venues, but we will of course be adding to it as time goes on and there is a simple "suggest" form so you, our dear readers, can send us links to companies, venues and agencies we have missed.

The Core lives on it's own domain name on so bookmark it and share it with your friends and loved ones even if they don't like dance, especially if they don't like dance!

Stay slippy!
