a festival of contemporary dance
curated by Gillie Kleiman

27 – 30 October 2016
at Yorkshire Dance
and other venues around Leeds


Four of the works in this year’s Juncture festival will feature collaborators who don’t have to be professional dancers. To find out more, look at this:

The community dance movement, folk dance, YouTube dance classes and Strictly all tell us the same thing: everybody dances.

Departing from here, this edition of Juncture collects together artworks where the role of the professional dancer is given to someone else, bringing artists, participants and their shared work into conversation about what happens when the dancing is handed over. Gillie’s full programme for Juncture 2016 will be announced later in the spring. Works confirmed so far include:

  • QuarantineWallflower
  • Nicola Conibere, Assembly
  • Lucy SuggateSwarm Sculptures
  • Fitzgerald and StapletonMINE
  • immigrants and animals, Laura Laura Double Penetration
  • Sara LindströmDancing On My Own

We look forward to gathering a temporary community of artists and audiences for a long weekend of workshops, debates and performances.

“an excellent opportunity to see international work of a high calibre – more please!”
