Programme announced for Resolution 2016

THE PLACE ANNOUNCES THE PROGRAMME FOR RESOLUTION, THE UK’S BIGGEST FESTIVAL FOR NEW DANCE.

London’s boldest dance theatre announces the line-up for the 27th edition of Resolution festival which runs from Friday 8 January to Friday 19 February 2016. Across 26 nights, 78 companies take to the stage to test the limits of dance through bold ideas and movement. This year The Place has partnered with Akademi, Breakin’ Convention, Jacksons Lane and Rambert to support emerging talent and present the latest and bravest trends in contemporary performance.

Resolution is the place to discover the unexpected, to sample future performance trends before they migrate to larger stages and possibly discover the next big thing in dance. Almost all of today’s top UK-based contemporary choreographers presented their earliest work at this platform, including Wayne MacGregor, Hofesh Shechter, Kate Prince, Luca Silvestrini and more recently Tony Adigun, James Cousins and Sarah Blanc.

A company to watch is aKa Dance Theatre Company who received arts council funding this year. The company was co-founded by Jennifer Grant and Joe Garbett in early 2014. Next Door by aKa Dance Theatre Company portrays the unravelling of a man and woman’s relationship in the domestic setting of the living room. Their work uncovers visceral interactions of the human body and this duet hopes to do the same. You can catch them at Resolution 2016 on Tuesday 26 January alongside Poekert & Bysheim and BAMBULAproject.

With an uncompromising attitude of experimentation this year’s choreographers draw on diverse movement styles from hip hop to South Asian dance, circus to contemporary, ballet to ballroom. Using this rich language they comment and explore themes of gender, sexuality, social change, immigration, cultural traditions, literature, science and love.
