Deadline 24th March 2016 – Surprised body project #London
The Surprised body project has been developing, as an ongoing creative process, creating several new versions of the work while touring in different countries, sometimes also involving guest dancers and new composers to participate in the performances.
Surprised body project, has never been the same twice, as the structured improvisations always modified the work and local needs and possibilities dictated the shape and context of the actual event. It develops new ways of sharing knowledge about dance, while producing specific discourses in the performing arts field.
Following its presentation in 23 countries across the world, Greenwich Dance will present the UK premiere Surprised body project #London at The Borough Hall on 22 June 2016 as part of Greenwich Dances 2016.
