Independent Dance (ID) is an artist-led organisation providing a responsive framework to support, sustain and stimulate dance artists in their ongoing development as professionals.
It provides a specialist and coherent programme offering opportunities to learn, deepen enquiry, share practice and exchange ideas as part of an interdependent international community.
The classes and workshops at the core of the programme, led by internationally renowned artists, place a particular focus on movement exploration as a source for performance, improvisation and composition. Please visit the Classes page for our current programme.
We are delighted to once again be hosting an inspiring ensemble of renowned practitioners as part of WinLab 2013.
The Festival opens with a Body-Mind Centering workshop led by highly respected practitioner Linda Hartley, is followed by the performance project led this year by the exceptionally unique dance artist Wendy Houstoun, and closes with an opportunity to immerse yourselves in shared improvisational practices, jointly led by internationally acclaimed dance artists Kirstie Simson and Adam Benjamin.
We hope you can join us!
Our talks series Crossing Borders 2013 continues with Calum Storrie and Amy Sharrocks.
Curated by Frank Bock, the ten talks explore the interaction / intra-action between work and spectator. Speakers present participatory, immersive, interactive, and conceptual strategies towards self and object.
And if you missed a talk, or want to revisit one, the first six Crossing Borders talks are now online!
Go to our Media and Resources page to listen to or download audio recordings of the talks.
Independent Dance is currently researching how independent dance artists manage their ongoing professional development and training. We want to hear from artists and practitioners directly, and to do this we have launched a survey.
Your answers will inform what professional development opportunities we offer, making sure that classes, workshops and projects are relevant and useful to you – and there are prizes to be won!
