Nottingham asks 'Where is a Place to Dance?'

Nottingham asks 'Where is a Place to Dance?'

Over the course of four days, Dance4 will bring the people of Nottingham and further afield together with the aim of making people think about where is a place to dance.

Stuart Allen, Producer: Artists, Dance4 said, “The Dance4 team and myself are excited to explore the concept of where is a place to dance, with the public and a number of talented artists.  These artists will question and share their thinking about dance within galleries, dance that happens in our urban spaces and dance that offers the opportunity for the public to commission, create and perform.”

The four-day symposium, named A Place To Dance?, is made up of five events that will include discussion and performance and will take place at various galleries and venues across Nottingham.  Whether people have a keen interest in the arts and dance in particular or not, Dance4 is encouraging everyone to come along and share their thoughts. 

The symposium will culminate with a walking performance, A Long Dance and A Short Walk, by artist Alison Lloyd, through the parklands surrounding Nottingham Lakeside Arts.  Alison will bring dancing and walking together and invites all members of the community to join her on this rural ramble.

Dance4 has brought to Nottingham a wide variety of dance in public spaces. Mass Bolero was a mass participation project made in 2014 by the people of Nottingham in tribute to Torvill and Dean. It starred hundreds of people from across the city and county.

Dance4 has also produced dance in Nottingham train station and on NET Trams and platforms throughout the city routes.
