The Value of Dancing

When I was taking my film studies degree at university a few years ago, I did a module about dance on screen. I learnt that dance was far more than ballroom and Latin, which has a strict set of steps that need to be used, and that the realm of post-modern dance was swiftly taking the lime light.

Post modern dance is not about structure or sequences, but about telling a story, communicating thoughts, ideas, and feelings. What is so special about dance is that it is a universal language; unlike words, it does not need translation, and no matter what country you're from, you can appreciate the meaning.

In November 'an international exchange of danced ideas' will be presented by The Place Theatre. Currency is a special season of three double-billed performances by cutting edge dancers from around Europe.

Diverse in style and inspiration, the shows invite audiences to share their interpretation with the artists involved in its production. Although tickets have yet to be released, they will include a dance performance, pre-show discussion, and dinner.

The first show is on the 20th November, and is called A Small Guide on How to Treat your Lifetime Companion.

On the 23rd November, Flatland is a story told by three dancer and an actor, about a neurologist who becomes his on test subject.

The last show, Duet for Two Dancers, is on the 27th November, and explores the anxiety of not living up to your own expectations.

Pre-show talks can be booked at either 6.30pm, 7pm, or 7.30pm. This will be followed by dinner, which usually consists of various salads, sandwiches, and fruit. The show itself, starts at 8pm.
