Discover Dance at The Riverfront in September!     

Discover Dance at The Riverfront in September! It’s time to Discover Dance at The Riverfront this September. This month, Newport welcomes an International exchange and outdoor dance event, local and national choreographers, circus and a whole lot of imagination.

Kicking off Discover Dance is Osez!, a FREE outdoor dance project from Canada, who will perform at The Riverfront with between Tuesday 16 –Saturday 20 September. Seven Canadian dancers and seven from Wales will work with choreographers Karine Ledoyen from Quebec and Sean Tuan John from Wales to create five different dances, a new dance every day, which will be performed on the quayside outside The Riverfront. This project is a chance for dance artists from Wales and Quebec to exchange techniques and knowledge, and also to perform together. The cafe and bar will be open for food and drinks. Entry is free and you can either come along to just one performance, or all five! The choice is yours.

For those attending the Osez! performance on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, there will also be a chance to see local choreographer James Roberts’ work Wardrobe Diaires, which combines Circus (Chinese pole) and Dance. This will take place in the Studio Theatre after the Osez! performance and is funded by The Riverfront and supported by the mighty NoFit State Circus.

On Wednesday 24 September at 7.30pm, there will be another dance performance choreographed by Karine Ledoyen. This time it is the Canadian dance company Danse K par K which will have a performance called Cibler. This is a performance positioned half way between theatre and dance, where three dancers reflect on isolation and the ways in which people come together or separate. First performed at the Grand Theatre de Quebec, Cibler received excellent reviews, and this performance at The Riverfront is the only UK performance. Tickets are priced at £8 with reductions available.
