News: Adventures in Movement Create09

Monday 6 July 2009

This week sees the launch of a new festival of dance & physical theatre. Adventures in Movement Create 09 runs at Arcola Theatre, Hackney, from 6 July to 2 August.

Arcola has become well known for its diverse theatre programme in two studio spaces since opening in 2000. The four week festival of dance and physical work marks the acquisition of a new space – Studio K, which is adjacent to the theatre’s current premises and offers an extra 4,000 square feet for the expansion of activities and programme range. Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen said “I have been intrigued by the possibilities of this building since the day we opened Arcola, it is very exciting to finally have my hands on it!”

Adventures in Movement Create09 includes 40 shows from innovative artists working across a wide range of dance forms. It promises: “ballet, boys and bikes, capoeira, a fairytale of swans and a mass exercise routine; dances exploring everything from our inner emotional landscapes to ex-communist cultural heritage, from sacrifice and sex to magic, space and flesh.” See the full line up here
