Cloud Dance Festival is pleased to announce its summer festival, Hush, which will be held at Cochrane Theatre in Holborn on 16 – 18 July. This will be our 11th festival so far.
With Hush, Cloud Dance Festival intends to bring contemporary dance to a wider audience, with its usual mixture of new companies and audience favourites. Among the highlights of this festival are a special triple-bill from Cloud Dance Festival regulars Taciturn, 2010 Blueprint Bursary Prize winner James Wilton, Isadora Duncan dance brought to you by Julia Pond Dance and the acclaimed Pair Dance and Slanjayvah Danza, performing an excerpt of their newest work Crazy Joanna.
We will also be presenting contemporary jazz from BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Sol Dans and Kinisi Dance Company; The Typewriters’ retelling of the 16th century “dance plague”; The Milo Miles Dance Company’s adaptation of the story of Spartacus, a piece about childhood fears from Diciembre Dance Group and Sillander & Pascual’s exploration of Happiness.
Cloud Dance Festival aims to present a selection of high-quality contemporary dance three times a year, with its lineups consisting of a mixture of special guests, returning festival favourites, and a selection of exciting new up-and-coming artists – offering the audience a variety of pieces which promise to be provocative, humorous, contemplative and insightful. Above all, Hush offers both the established dance audience and people new to dance the opportunity to watch the best in new and emerging contemporary dance.
We are very disappointed we did not secure the necessary funding to make this festival possible, but we are thrilled we are able to proceed nonetheless.
