Curated by dancer and choreographer Wendy Houstoun, the second edition of Yorkshire Dance’s Juncture festival features films, performances, workshops, guided walks, discussions and a party.
Juncture is designed to bring new work, professional development, debate and innovative performance practice to Yorkshire. The first edition was curated by Charlotte Vincent in 2012. This year’s festival runs from March 4 to 15.
Finnish-Norwegian duo Riita Ikonen and Karoline Hjorth will work with older people from Leeds and West Yorkshire on Eyes as Big as Plates, a project that explores humanity’s relation to nature, complete with wearable sculptures. DV8 performer Jordi Cortés, concludes his trilogy of works about life and death with In Heaven.
Houstoun and her company present Stupid Women, a tribute to Nigel Charnock, “whose piece Stupid Men irritated and annoyed most audiences… We are hoping to achieve something similar.” Candoco dance Lea Anderson’s new Miniatures. Film screenings include Siobhan Davies’ All This Can Happen.
