Platforms for emerging work
Bath Dance works in partnership to develop two platforms for emerging work:
EVOLVE is an annual platform that aims to nurture future talent and provide a space for South West based graduate dance artists and companies to show emerging ideas-in-progress in-front of a live audience, with feedback and support post-sharing. Past graduate artists and companies include Exim Dance, Mike Williams, AKA Dance and Hal Smith.
Bath Dance, Bath Spa University and Theatre Bristol.
Testing Ground is a platform that happens on a seasonal basis for dance artists and companies, emerging or established to test new performance ideas in front of a live audience. It provides a place for new work to be shown and encourages an opportunity for an open discussion on the work presented. Past artists and companies include Kathleen Downie and Viv Gordan.
Co-presented by Theatre Bristol, Circomedia and Bath Dance. It is supported by Laila Diallo and Karla Shacklock.
