Bloomberg SPACE and The Place

Performance: Friday 18th November 2011, 8:10pm
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.

There are effectively two performers within the piece; the dancer and the drum kit, which acts as a vessel for both light and sound, both of which are individually in control of their own rhythms whilst being able to determine one another’s. The dancer has a direct interplay with these elements, creating an experience that heightens the senses for both performer and audience.
