National Centre for Choreography
Music & Dance: A True Collaboration
Monday 13 - Friday 24 August
The aim of the National Centre for Choreography (NCC) is to offer
themed, cross arts research and development LABS for choreographers
wishing to explore focused areas of development over an intensive two
week period, without the pressures of presenting or producing new work.
This August sees the second LAB at the National Centre for Choreography. The four choreographers chosen through application are: Jennifer Essex
, Jean Magnard
, Paolo Mangiola
and George Williamson
. The composers are: Christopher Mayo
, Anna Meredith
, Donal Sarsfield
and Charlie Usher
. They represent an array of genres and backgrounds which should lead to some fascinating research.
The LAB will be led by Artistic Director & Choreographer, Kim Brandstrup
and Cellist/Producer in New Music, Oliver Coates
, who have developed a structured programme whereby choreographers, composers, dancers and a group of musicians, together with a range of guests from other art forms, will offer insights and perspectives into the LAB theme, and contribute to discussions and tasks throughout the two weeks. Guest speakers will include musician Leafcutter John
, Shobana Jeyasingh
and guest teacher Marina Collard
|NB: This event is not open to the public.
