From arms to arts, play's the thing

Striking home to soldier artists reopens as dance school

by Maev Kennedy, arts and heritage correspondent in The Guardian

Quote:
In March 1889 there was a tremendous bash at Duke's Road, a stone's throw from St Pancras station in London, with a singular diversion in the interval, "The New Bayonet Excercise, done by a team of the Artists' RV".
Now the Duke's Road building is to reopen in three weeks after a £7m rebuild which has peeled back its history as the former headquarters of one of the most extraordinary regiments in the British army: the Artists' Rifles, which in the late 19th century enlisted the most famous and fashionable artists.

Facinating article but it tells us very little about what the regiment did - it suggests they were a regiment of artists who stayed just that during battle - war artists - but then tells us it was folded into the SAS who, to my knowledge, are not air lifted into remote parts of the Middle East to paint terrorists' portraits. Can anyone enlighten me on the regiment and the involvement of Millais, Alma Tadema, etc.

Dance studio leaps forward

by Danielle Demetriou in The Evening Standard

Quote:
A new landmark is to appear in King's Cross. The Place - a London-based contemporary dance company credited with expanding the boundaries of dance for 30 years - will re-open next month in a huge complex after being closed for 12 months.

Press Release

The Place Choreodrome

21 July – 14 September 2003





'It's often said that space is the single most valuable commodity for a dance maker. That may be true, but in Choreodrome, The Place offers more than just a studio. Choreodrome is a laboratory without expectations, a protected time when you can concentrate on process and maybe do things a completely different way. It's also a close community, where fellow artists can support each other and where, if you want, you can share with other participants what you discover.'

Richard Alston, Artistic Director, The Place



Are you a professional dance artist looking for R&D space and time?

Do you want to collaborate with international artists and other art forms but can’t get the funding?



In 2002 almost four hundred choreographers, dancers and other artists from the UK and overseas participated in Choreodrome creating a vibrant creative summer community. The project is open to professional choreographers working in a contemporary idiom from mature artists to recent graduates. Studio space, video facilities including edit suite, audio visual studio, library and the Robin Howard Dance Theatre are available to dance makers to undertake research without the pressure to present a performance outcome. Proposals which include overseas artists and cross-art collaborations are particularly welcome.



In future Choreodrome will happen every 2 years – all the more reason to apply this year! The Place is developing a forum for artists to develop their ideas which complements Choreodrome. More details will follow later in 2003.



Guidelines available from Tuesday 28 January

Deadline for completed applications

Wednesday 5 March, 6pm.
