Improv Dance at A Foundation TODAY

Short Notice – There’s dance at A foundation today (Saturday)

Saturday 11 July 2009 3pm to 6pm, free

Physical performers, dancers and improvisers taking part in the 23rd European Contact Improvisation Teachers Exchange at Edge Hill University will create a series of public performance events throughout the industrial spaces of A Foundation.

Contact Improvisation is growing throughout Europe, and is taught and applied in a large variety of places, from academic settings to festivals and therapeutic situations. The conference, ECITE09, is a celebration of this diversity, bringing together practitioners of varying experience, teachingstyles, ages, aesthetics and interests in order to exchange ideas and develop this multi-disciplinary art form.

The performance at A Foundation will present the public with some of the finest practitioners of contact improvisation from across Europe and use the challenging spaces of A Foundation’s restored industrial galleries as inspiration and backdrop.
