Dovetail by Vanhulle Dance Theatre and an evening of selected film works, curated by Lizzie Klotz, will be the first events to feature in the INSIDE OUT /OUTSIDE IN project by Dance City. The project is supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

The project aims to encourage engagement in dance works and cross-collaboration across the North East region. OUTSIDE IN invites external artists to use the Dance City space to facilitate a project. We will invite local artists as curators, they will programme and commission works for their night. INSIDE OUT allows dance artists to create a piece designed for outside, public performance. The use of outdoor space will be important for Dance City to develop new audiences for dance in the North East. The project aims to explore how artists and community can contribute to and influence Dance City’s programmes.

The first two works in the OUTSDIE IN / INSIDE OUT scheme are taking place in May and June 2022.

Vanhulle Dance Theatre brings their first high octane public performances to the North East. This free performance is available for everyone, no booking required.

Choreographed by Mickaël ‘Marso’ Rivière, performed by VDT Co-Directors Laura Vanhulle and Oliver Russell, with music by Composer Domenico Angarano, this short highly physical and emotive contemporary new dance work can be viewed from all sides. An all-powerful arresting duet, don’t miss it…
