On Saturday 12 March 2016, Sally Doughty and Dance4 hosted the Dance Improvisation: The Estranged Cousin Symposium at Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester.

The symposium focused on the status and perception of contemporary dance improvisation from the perspective of artist, producer and venue. We created a space for open dialogue, conversations and provocations through a range of performative presentations, panel discussions and performances. Presenters and performers included American dancer and scholar Kent de Spain; dancer and academic Professor Vida Midgelow; Claire Soper - Tour Producer for Dance Touring Partnership; Chris Stafford - CEO of Curve, Leicester; dance artist and academic Rachel Krische; musician Rex Horan; comedian Dan Nicholas; Quick Shifts improvisation collective (Jo Breslin and Jill Cowley) with guests Ian Dolan and Lewys Holt; and Dance4's Producer: Artists - Stuart Allen.

Videos of each presentation are now available online, and so if you missed the symposium or would like to revisit the day, follow the links below:
