Performance: Friday 18th November 2011, 7:00pm
Last in the series of COMMA commissions at Bloomberg SPACE, The Place, the UK’s premier centre for contemporary dance, presents COMMA 40, the first ever series of dance installations at Bloomberg. The Place’s choreographers will inhabit the gallery, showcasing the broad and diverse practices of contemporary dance with an array of site-specific installations, performances, film screenings and impromptu one-off dances, offering an unprecedented insight into the creative process of dance artists.

Kettling, the police tactic for the management of large crowds during protests and involves large cordons of police officers who contain a crowd within a limited area. How long does it take for a peaceful protest to become a riot.
Dance United work with the marginalised in society. Contemporary dance training and performance has the power to unlock their potential.
