In 2017 Dance Umbrella and Rambert launched an informal new showcase called Studio Saturdays, connecting British choreographers with industry professionals. Each artist or company shared a short work in progress that was yet to premiere, followed by a short Q&A led by Dance Umbrella’s Artistic Director Emma Gladstone, to international programmers, producers, supporters and funders.
Participating artists in 2017 included Lost Dog (Ben Duke), Julie Cunningham and Company, Patrick Eakin Young, Birdgang, Kyoung-Shin Kim, SWNSNG (Ivan Blackstock), Sasha Milavic Davies and Lucy Railton, Stillhouse (Dan Canham and the Steppaz), and Richard Chappell.
This year Studio Saturdays will take place on Saturday 6th and Saturday 13th October during the 2018 Dance Umbrella festival. Watch this space for more information about the programme. Attendance is for professionals and by invitation only, for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
