KQ Partner Collaboration: The Place and Wellcome Collection

Over the summer KQ partner The Place has been supporting 30 dance artists to research and develop performance ideas, and explore new artistic territory as part of Choreodrome, a biennial summer research programme for British-based dance makers.

As well as free space to research and rehearse, the programme creates a diverse artistic community with regular opportunities for feedback, weekly lunches and demonstrations of work in process. This year the Place have collaborated with Knowledge Quarter partner, the Wellcome Collection, to enable eight artists to research their ideas in the Reading Room at Wellcome Collection.

In September there is also an opportunity for some of the artists to perform their work in progress to a public audience in a season of scratch performances called Touch Wood. This process enables the artists to further refine their project for the stage, following feedback from the audience at the end of each session.

Touchwood runs from the 2th to18th September, for more information and to book click here.
