Welcome to 12th nottdance festival of international dance.

Welcome to an exciting programme which promises a blend of high quality, innovative work which defies convention from some of the most creative choreography around.

Nottdance 2001 presents the newest voices from the world of international dance; innovative works by dancers and choreographers who are pushing back the conceptual and physical limits of dance. Much of the work is questioning and bold; made specifically for galleries and small venues allowing for an intimate relationship between viewer and performer.

We are delighted to introduce German choreographers Felix Ruckert who will work with performers from the East Midlands to re-cerate his unique, interactive performance Ring, and we will collaborate with Nottingham Playhouse to present Nigel Charnock’s outrageous new work Asylum. We welcome back to Nottingham the highly original and entertaining artists La Ribot and Jerome Bel, and Live Bait present their brand new work girls and dogs along with Philipp Gehmacher and Willi Dorner in a fantastic triple bill evening of dance. Nottdance features new works created by young talents from the region as well as imaginative family shows in venues throughout the county by Yolande Snaith Theatredance and invigorating music and dance from Black Umfolosi.

Over 3 weeks expect to be excited, to experience dance performance in a new way, to think about what it is to be a spectator, to be impressed by what you see. Whether a newcomer to dance or a die-hard fan, the festival promises to entertain, challenge an inspire. Just remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
