Private Dances

Private Dances is all about intimate encounters with dance. One on one performances, private rooms and damn good dancing all fan out from an exquisite central banquet.

This is not your average dance/theatre project. It’s an immersive and celebratory event showcasing the work of 20 emerging dance artists and encouraging people to be brave in conversation about dance. And its not just about contemporary dance – Private Dances will include performances and films that are culturally and stylistically diverse, taking in krump, highland, contortion, and beyond…
