South East Dance presents undisciplined, a micro-festival celebrating choreography in all its forms


Leading dance organisation, South East Dance, today announces that it will host undisciplined – Brightons new micro-festival celebrating experimental and thought-provoking contemporary performance across the city from Wednesday 18 April to Friday 20 April.

South East Dance has curated a programme designed to appeal to audiences hungry for new ways of seeing performance, including the city’s artistic community. The festival comes just as building work commences on The Dance Space, a dedicated state of the art home for dance in the heart of Brighton and Hove, for South East Dance.

The undisciplined micro-festival will offer a preview of the calibre of artists that will be encouraged and welcomed into The Dance Space to research, explore and create ground-breaking new choreographic work for the future.

Comprising of four performances, undisciplined takes place in various venues across the city; with evening shows hosted at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts and The Old Market.

Performances include:

A double bill from Candoco Dance Company, a group made up of disabled and non-disabled dancers, who have previously performed alongside Coldplay at the London 2012 Paralympic closing ceremony.

Amy Bell presents ‘Tombo(y)la’, a performative conversation as part of Trailing Identity, a day of artist led provocation and discussion.

Voodoo’ by Project O, a dynamic creative force who place race and gender politics at the heart of their performance work.

The closing performance will include a double-bill with artists Eleanor Sikorski presenting ‘Comebacks I thought of later’ and Belgium based Jan Martens with his solo, ‘Ode to the Attempt’. 

Cath James, programme director of South East Dance, said:

All of the artists in the inaugural undisciplined line-up strive to stir up thought-provoking debate through dance, and present audiences with exciting and unexpected new dance performances. A taste of what to expect once The Dance Space opens in 2020.”
