60 x 60 Dance
Sat 24 July 2010
3pm & 8pm
60×60 Dance brings together dance and electronic music in an electrifying one-hour performance. This is a one-of-a-kind show, where each minute of the hour you will see a new composer and a new choreographer.
60×60 Dance takes 60 one-minute audio works from an international pool of emerging and established composers and assigns them to 60 local choreographers.
Eclectic by nature, 60×60 Dance offers an unmatched diversity of styles, making for a fast-speed, electrifying performance that never ceases to surprise. Dance influences will range from ballet to breakin’ and everything in between, while music includes neo-romantic, folk, tech-house, noise, rock and everything but the kitchen sink.
The brainchild of composer and producer Robert Voisey, 60×60 started in New York and has grown across the globe. East London Dance, Silke Arnold and Adriana Pegorer present it’s European debut as part of the Create Festival and to celebrate the two year countdown to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“An express without any delay….It’s this kind of madness that makes the cultural world go round.”
