2019 & 2020
Fest en Fest
This autumn H2DANCE has been exploring possible links between Nordic festivals and Fest en Fest. With support from BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen Norway we visited their festival Oktoberdans. In November we traveled to Everybody’s Spectacular in Reykjavik Iceland with support from Reykjavik Dance Festival.
We have now secured funding from the Nordic Culture Fund to further develop our connections with venues and festivals in The Nordic Countries and will take up residencies at Vitlycke Sweden, Reykjavik Dance Festival Iceland and Multiplié dansefestival Trondheim Norway in 2019.
The next edition of Fest en Fest will take place February 2020 in Deptford London and the east of England.
Strangers & Others
H2DANCE invited writer Ian Abbott to write about Strangers & Others.
Under are the links to the works created in response to the work:
22nd – 24th of June 2018
Fest en Fest
In 2017 H2DANCE secured research funding from Arts Council England to develop a festival of new choreographies titled Fest en Fest in partnership with Trinity Laban, The Albany and Goldsmiths in South East London. The festival will take place 22nd – 24th of June 2018 across the three venues, encompassing performances, workshops, seminars as well as afternoon and evening gatherings and parties. It will focus on work in the expanded choreographic field, presenting artists from the Nordic Countries and the UK.

Strangers and Others workshops
24.- 28.7.2017 – –Immersive Performance Workshop with Hanna and Heidi
Tanzfabrik, Kreuzberg 1Möckernstr. 68, 10965 Berlin DE
Using improvisation and set material and drawing inspiration from the participants, we will explore ways of making, questioning and observing material for performance, using voice and movement. We will take turns to experience the work both as performers and spectators and look at ways in which a performance can become immersive moving in and around, and at times involve the audience.
We are new MADE in the web members! Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/madeintheweb/
Here is the link to what H2DANCE was up to in 2016:

The work will go into production from April 2017. More info to follow soon.
