Private Dances is all about intimate encounters with dance. One on one performances, private rooms and damn good dancing all fan out from an exquisite central banquet. Through the course of the evening audiences are invited to eat, drink, talk and work their way through a formidable selection of live dance and dance on screen.

Featuring a diverse cross section of super-fine work by a new generation of top-notch dancers, choreographers and dance film makers, Private Dances houses individual works in a series of tiny private rooms. These rooms envelop one audience member at a time, enfolding them into each artist’s world before sending them back to join the banquet.

This is not your average dance/theatre project. It’s an immersive and celebratory event showcasing the work of 20 emerging dance artists and encouraging people to be brave in conversation about dance. And its not just about contemporary dance – Private Dances will include performances and films that are culturally and stylistically diverse, taking in krump, highland, contortion, and beyond…

This project is part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival’s Dance Program. Click HERE to read more about it.
