Experimental Encounters in Europe
South East Dance continues to build its links with like-minded organisations across Europe through the delivery of Experimental Encounters, a new project that aims to connect artists and audiences from creation through to performance, in doing so encouraging a more holistic artistic journey. Following investment from the SPACE Network as part of the SPACE 2 Destinations programme we will be working in partnership with SPRING Festival in Utrecht and Pilsen 2015 in the Czech Republic to deliver the programme which will be piloted from autumn 2014 through to summer 2015. Watch the space for further news!


forsythefestivalWilliam Forsythe installation a big hit in Brighton Festival
Amidst the plethora of fantastic dance activity co-programmed as part of Brighton Festival 2014, it was William Forsythe’s installation Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No.2 at Circus Street Market, the future site for The Dance Space, which particularly captured the imagination of the Festival-going public. Over 10,000 people experienced Forsythe’s ‘choreographic object’ and the trailer we commissioned about the work went viral, with more than 61,000 views and counting. We’re thrilled that this special piece of work struck such a chord; if you haven’t seen the video, click here to watch it on our YouTube channel.

Brighton Oasis Project funding boost
Following a successful pilot with Brighton Oasis Project (BOP), made possible with support from Cathedral Plc, we're really happy to share news that we have successfully secured investment from The Rayne Foundation to further develop our work in a drug and alcohol recovery unit. Building on the great work that has taken place to date, we're now in a position to develop the project over the next two years. Two dance artists will be in residence at the BOP centre, establishing regular contact with service users to develop dance activity including classes, workshops and performances that aim to support pathways to recovery from substance misuse and improve wellbeing.

Devised and performed by Dominque Jégou and the company, this choreographic work will include local dancers and spontaneous interactions from the public. Further details on our website coming soon.
