Our Gift to You: A Festive Offering of Online Dance

This Christmas why not put your feet up, grab a mulled drink and mince pie and enjoy our present to you - a selection of online dance that includes some of our favourite work from this year, and a tantalising taster of work we've commissioned for 2022.

Still from the film Choogh Choogh by Anusha Subramanyam

Inside our Christmas cracker of online dance you will find the following treats:

Choogh Choogh!  by Anusha Subramanyam

Created for children under five and their families as part of Little Big Dance, experience the sights, sounds and smells  of a train journey through India evoked through South Asian dance, music, and theatre; and meet some amazing characters along the way.

The Tartu Piano by Lucy Turner

In this moving contemporary dance film Lucy Turner explores the grief of her Grandma’s passing whilst also attempting to embody the sound of Max Richter's The Tartu Piano. In her film Lucy makes complex shapes with her body to show the confusion of understanding loss and the various thought processes that surround it.

Three films by Thick & Tight and The Welcome Project Steering Group

Dance duo Daniel Hay-Gordon and Eleanor Perry, aka Thick & Tight, worked online with The Welcome Project Steering Group this year to create a series of short films for Our City Dances 2021, and we're delighted to give you another chance to watch these fantastically creative pieces. 

She Calls by Sidonie Carey-Green and Emilia Robinson

She Calls is a glimpse of a a longer South East Dance-commissioned film called Reverie by artists Sidonie Carey-Green and Emilia Robinson that will be premiered in 2022. It also works beautifully as a standalone  meditation on how we can reconnect with and reveal our human form in an increasingly digital and disconnected age. 

Watch all of these films, for free, by clicking the links below. Best wishes for a safe and healthy festive time from everyone at South East Dance and we'll see you in January 2022 when we'll be sharing some exciting news about The Dance Space.
