State of Emergency’s Black Choreographers’ Retreat with Bebe Miller high-kicked itself into gear at Dartington last night, and the three performances showed the variety, depth, ambition and scope of contemporary dance. And underlined Dartington’s position as a prime location for national dance.
Sean Graham’s Club Cult-Ure developed from club night observations, Adesola Akinleye’s Trace was based on research into the history of the people of St Albans and Kompany Malkhi’s Body Language was a search for truth in the multi-media age (watch the Kompany Malkhi’s Boxin, above).
State of Emergency has been supporting artists since 1986, and the weekend retreat with Columbus, Ohio-based Bebe Miller (multi-award winner and Professor in Dance at The Ohio Sate University) will include workshops, feedback and performance.
A perfect precursor as we all practise our pliÃ©s for Dance ing Devon, which takes place throughout the county during June and July. Visit the Dance in Devon site for more details.
