Like most choroegraphers, Tom and Pete, whilst waiting for the terpsichorean muse to strike, like to sit in their ivory tower and watch their favourite TV shows (DIY plastic surgery Nightmares, I’m a Fat Celebrity Watch Me Jog and Britain's Top 100 Numbers). However, since hearing how good Dance Umbrella was going to be this year they've decided to break the habit of a lifetime and actually go out to the theatre to see some dance.
In fact they are going to see the whole lot. Every turn, every skip, every arthritis-inducing lift. They are going to try to get into every party and have a question answered at every post-show discussion. They want to be there to witness every choreographer's tantrum. They will read all the publicity and all the reviews and every article in every Sunday paper. They will trek across the capital night after night with nothing but an A to Z, a copy of Time Out, a camera and a desire to see the very best in the world of dance.
And at the end of it all they will present a dance comedy show based on the experience - a diary of the days and nights of the hardiest festival go-ers under the Umbrella.
Time Out and Dance Umbrella have received an investment from Arts & Business New Partners to develop a creative partnership with New Art Club.
