Winter Dance Gathering

Friday 4 December 2009 08.00 to Sunday 6 December 2009 17.00
Susanne Thomas:

Where are we now and what are we doing? What is happening in contemporary dance and performance and where are we placed in relation to this? How has our work developed, what excites us, interests us and intrigues us now?

Having begun a choreography programme six years ago and starting a new dance degree course in autumn 2010, we look back to our graduates and forward to our students, gathering together for a festive investigation of what we're all up to right now.
