Yorkshire Dance is showcasing exciting small-scale contemporary dance this week, working with other dance agencies from Newcastle, Manchester and Edinburgh.
Live Bites, shown in Leeds on Friday, November 26, will include a group of new works, followed by post-show conversations. Wieke Eringa, director of Yorkshire Dance, said, “The artists performing at Yorkshire Dance are presenting an amazing variety of work – some of it very funny, some of it very moving, some of it wonderfully odd – but what they’ve got in common is real creativity. It’s an exciting time for contemporary dance in the UK, and we can’t wait to see what audiences make of these new works.”
The artists performing are:
Vanessa Grasse and Riccardo Meneghini (Leeds) – La Visione
Gary Clarke (Barnsley) – Bagofti
Ultimate Dancer (Harrogate) – This is Not a Dance
Surface Area Dance Theatre (Newcastle) – The Flowering Moon
Black Swan Dance Theatre (Edinburgh) – These are the conditions, now what happens next?
Project Auske (Manchester) – Abandoning Things
Before the main programme, there will also be two studio performances of works in progress by Lucy Suggate and Ella Mesma, starting at 7pm.
