Dance Roads Tour 2008     

Dance Roads Tour 2008 A unique programme of international contemporary dance, bringing together emerging and talented dance artists from Europe and Canada.

Welsh Independent Dance (WID), in partnership with Chapter, is hosting the premiere performance of this biannual touring event, which offers audiences the opportunity to view the work of selected artists from Cardiff, Turin, Luxembourg and Montreal. Dance Roads was founded in 1990 by a worldwide group of dance organisations dedicated to supporting emerging and innovative dance artists. The programme of original dance works is presented in each of the countries involved, exposing new work to a fully international audience.

Over two nights at Chapter we present the most innovative and distinct new choreographers to have emerged in recent years on the international dance scene.

Deborah Light (Wales)
Angelica is a shadowy fairytale that delves into deep emotions, exposing the beautiful and the dark, unsettling sides of the human character.

Anne-Mareike Hess (Luxembourg)
Remember is a study of memory, developed during a month long residency at the Luxembourg Dance Palace in August 2007.

Bridie Doyle (Wales – guest artist)
Kissing Gate

Sat 16 Feb • 8pm

Hinda Essadiqi (Montreal)
El fin del infinito is a collage of images in movement, where each frame is made by an unconscious memory from the future. What happens when a perceived end becomes the beginning of something new? There is nudity in this piece.

Eleonora Ariolfo (Turin)
Parole Mute is a study of a woman who chooses silence and seclusion to escape from a world to which she would otherwise succumb.

Caroline Sabin (Wales – guest artist)

Through Dance Roads, WID and Chapter have also provided the opportunity for two Wales based artists to have their work presented within the Cardiff programme. Following a selection process, Bridie Doyle and Caroline Sabin were selected to be guest artists.
