Experimental Encounters

Experimental Encounters is a new initiative developed by SED to enhance the understanding between our audiences and artists. We want to encourage dialogue between our local audiences and the artists we think are creating intriguing and experimental work. For this new project, South East Dance, along with partners Spring! Utrecht and Pilsen 2015 Pap-rna kulturní centrum have been awarded funding through the SPACE 2 Destinations programme, supported by Creative Europe.

The partners have selected German artist Julian Hetzel, currently based in Amsterdam to be our test pilot for this project. Hetzel will undertake a research residency for his new work Sculpting Fear. Hetzel will work with local people in each city who will act as 'audience ambassadors', through which conversation and sharing will take place about Hetzel's creative process. The Ambassadors will advocate within their communities on behalf of Hetzel and bring community members (those new to or have less experience of contemporary dance) to Hetzel's open sharing. The artist sharing will be live-streamed and followed by Ambassadors in other partners' cities. Finally, the performance work developed through the residences will be presented in each partner's city: Brighton, Utrecht, and Pilsen through spring and summer 2015.

The first residency will take place in Brighton from 26 November – 3 December 2014. Following that, there will be a residency in Pilsen in early 2015 and finally in Utrecht in spring 2015.

South East Dance at Brighton Festival 2014

brightonfestival2Last year's Brighton Festival Guest Director was Hofesh Shechter, South East Dance's ambassador for The Dance Space. We were delighted to partner with Brighton Festival to present a stunning programme of dance for England's biggest multi-arts festival. 

Hofesh Shechter’s energetic and quixotic take on the world infused the whole festival, but nowhere more so than in the dance programme, introduced here by our Programme Director Cath James, who leads Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival Dance Programming.

South East Dance and Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival

brightondome2South East Dance has joined forces with Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, bringing together the expertise of both organisations to develop a new world class dance performance programme for Brighton Dome and across the wider city of Brighton & Hove.  By working in partnership we hope to bring exciting, accessible and innovative dance to audiences, artists and participants alike; helping more people across the City to not only be able to see but also take part in dance.
