Pitch. is a showcase for emerging contemporary dance choreographers, in association with 80collective. The platform is part of Lift Off Dance Festival 2015, now in its 15th year. The festival continues to grow in size each year and is an opportunity to bring together professional dancers, artists and audience members alike to indulge in the talent that the South East has to offer.

On Wednesday 29th April, at the Wilde Theatre you will have the chance to see work from David Colley, MOHOdance, The Mostly Everything People, Autin Dance Theatre and Meg Armishaw & Louis Thomas in an evening that celebrates innovation and creativity.

Ashley Hind, co-producer for Pitch. says:

“We want to provide a platform for developing artists to present their work in a welcoming and professional environment sharing their ideas with industry professionals and the general public, as well as bringing new and emerging choreographers to the local area of Bracknell.”

The evening offers an eclectic mix of works from MOHOdance’s suspension of a white frame, red stilettos and black boots to a band of moth-eaten performers trapped in an infinite loop by The Mostly Everything People.

Pitch. also sees Megan Armishaw and Louis Thomas’s first independent project together. Louis and Megan have been collaborating for a number of years and are founding members of the On the Roof collective and performers for London Soundpainting Orchestra, through which they have been developing personal and distinctive styles of moving and playing. They are excited to share You Small Apple Tree on the 29th April – a piece which explores the performers’ memories of familiar places.

As we begin to enter the heat of the General Election and a further uncertainty creeps in concerning the support of artists and small companies it is as important as ever to attend platforms like Pitch. and share your passion for the arts!

Whether this is your first time attending a dance event or you are regular theatre goer I would come along for a great evening of work from 5 very different artists.

Tickets are on sale now and are available at www.southhillpark.org.uk & via the Box Office on 01344 484 123.
