DanceEast presents an evening of new dance, with a focus on female choreographers, by some of the most talked-about contemporary dance artists.

(work in progress)

Five female dancers combine raw and energetic dance with instinctual physicality and emotive, cinematic movement. A journey of simmering unison, stunning partner work and tender solos all performed with a gut wrenching power.

Inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem Still I Rise, this defiant piece by choreographer Victoria Fox Markiewicz is set to a pounding rhythm and creates an intense, stark piece where hope dies last.


In conversation with Stephanie McMann, Eleanor Sikorski, Flora Wellesley Wesley

Who decides what an audience sees? How does a dancer choose who to work with? How do we encounter things beyond what we 'like'? How do we reach diversity and sustainability in the dance scene?

Over the last few months, Nora, the three dancers, have been asking themselves and other artists these questions. In this talk and discussion they will share the fruits of this period of international research.

“intellectually curious, funny and rude, possessed of chameleon stage talents and a taste for risk.” The Guardian (on ‘Nora Invites’)


Sarah Blanc recounts her past dating life through the songs of her first love – Jason Donovan. Presented in a lecture-style format, alongside a cardboard cut-out Jason, she offers important life lessons for those with too many broken hearts, through dance, theatre, comedy and a whole lot of lycra. Nothing can divide us with Sarah to guide us.

The piece was first created and presented for The Place’s emerging choreographer’s platform Resolution! in February 2014. The show has since been developed with creative support from mentors Bryony Kimmings and Aletta Collins.
