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.

In our continuing quest to bring you the very "best dance video on the web" (nudge, nudge, wink, wink! Ed!) we have been running some upgrades in the background on some of our older video material.

What was great a few years ago is, to be frank, looking a bit rough around the edges today. Over the last few years computer screens have gotten larger (on desktops and laptops), screen resolution has improved dramatically, broadband is so fast it's out of control and the computers themselves are much more powerful and can handle bigger and better video.

In recognition of this we've been going through the archives and upgrading older video using better compression technology, larger video player size and newer, less intrusive graphics.

The upgrades will also mean that the videos will work seamlessly on iPhone's and iPod Touch's and other smart phones and web enabled devices, we can get the videos onto our podcast channel and our Vimeo channel so you can share them directly through Facebook and your own website, if you have one!

The videos updated so far are:

[ Jonathan Lunn 'Self Assembly' ]
[ IBM 401 A Users Manual ]
[ Motionhouse 'Perfect' ]
[ Jasmin Vardimon Company 'Park' ]
[ Phoenix Dance Theatre 'See Blue Through' ]
[ Shobana Jeyasingh 'Faultline' ]
[ Hofesh Shechter 'Uprising' ]
[ Ultima Vez 'Spiegel' ]
[ Jasmin Vardimon Company 'Lullaby' ]
[ Candoco 'And who shall go to the ball' ]

Coming soon will be upgrades to, Jasmin Vardimon Company 'Justitia', Diversions 'Chase The Glowing Hours with Flying Feet', Siobhan Davies 'Birdsong', Scottish Dance Theatre 'No Stronger Than a Flower', and Charles Linehan 'Happy Days'.

If your particular favourite is not on the list then let us know and we'll see if we can upgrade it. This is a slow process however so it will take a couple of weeks.
