THE CULTUREMOVES LABDAYS IN NOVEMBER- CM Blog

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

The Blog post is for the CultureMoves Blog which covers the two LabDays carried out in Novemebr 2018. 

 

For the two LabDays, C-DaRE engaged with key stakeholders with a range of profiles and experience: choreographers, dance artists, dance researchers, dance educators, dance students (undergraduate and postgraduate), and outdoor arts practitioners. C-DaRE chose to aim their first LabDay at dance students and cultural heritage and dance organisations in the region, holding their first LabDay in Birmingham, UK on 15th November 2018. This took the format of an open panel conversation between choreographer Rosie Kay, Artistic Director of DanceXchange and Artistic Lead for BIDF2018, Lucie Mirkova, and Executive Director of DanceXchange, Clare Lewis to discuss dance, cities and working within site-based, festival contexts. The context of the ten-year growth of BIDF (Birmingham International Dance Festival) framed the conversation, which drew out questions of how dance makers, artists, producers and commissioners approach site-based dance work and how key relationships can develop between dancers, arts and cultural heritage organisations within a festival context.
