dance: create, enjoy, participate
Pavilion Dance South West celebrates and encourages dance nationally, building strong local and regional partnerships to connect it to a diverse and broad public through excellent performance and participation opportunities. I am proud to lead an organisation with a distinctive and respected national voice, an organisation that leads the sector across the region from Cornwall in the west, to Gloucestershire in the north and Wiltshire in the east and an organisation with an extraordinary offer to make to local people in Bournemouth. we are here for everyone: People who create dance, teach dance, watch dance and participate in dance. We are also here for people who do none of these things yet ... but will or should or could or might! As a team we all share a common set of values centred around a desire to welcome you towards us. We aim to be: Generous, Passionate, Inspiring, Inclusive and Fresh. Our beautiful art deco venue, Pavilion Dance, overlooks Bournemouth Pier and Pleasure Gardens and offers a state-of-the-art, 200-seat theatre, two spacious dance studios and plenty of opportunities to engage with dance and movement as audiences and participants. This spring season sees the continuation of our world-class “Thursday Night is Dance Night” performance series and the development of our Bolshoi Ballet presentations, live from Moscow, with performances including The Rite of Spring and Romeo and Juliet. The season also illustrates our role in supporting young people and professional development for dancers and teachers. There are masterclasses, syllabus support for teachers, dance careers advice and a celebration of youth dance from across the south west. Whatever your interest in dance and performance, we look forward to getting to know you!

Hetain always wanted to be Bruce Lee ... and sometimes he wanted to be just like his dad. For his new production he has also learned some Chinese and Kung Fu from the movies. Following his acclaimed theatre debut TeN, visual artist Hetain Patel returns to Pavilion Dance in a double act with dancer yuyu Rau, live music from Ling Peng and digital artist Barret Hodgson to answer the fundamental question: “What determines our identities?”

A celebration of past and present, this show highlights some of Sonia Sabri’s best known productions from the last ten years. The first half traces her artistic journey, with live performances linked by previously unseen archive recordings and a personal voiceover by Sonia. The three pieces selected for the programme are audience favourites and will make those new to Sonia’s work fall in love immediately: extracts from visually stunning Red and energetic Nisbat alongside the slick, urban solo Neon Dream, choreographed by Shobana Jeyasingh. The second half looks forward to the next stages of Sonia’s creative journey, with a new, specially commissioned work made with acclaimed guest artist and performer Ash Mukherjee. Sonia Sabri will be leading a masterclass on 14 February – see page 22 for details.

Who runs the town? The highest office has the best view but it’s a very long way up from the street and the quickest way down is to fall … Combining dance with free-running in spectacular choreographies on complex scaffold sets, The Urban Playground Team bring Bournemouth a world-premiere show that tells the story of a day in the life of a group of city workers as they fight for promotion, attention, the elusive bonus and ultimately survival. Join The Urban Playground Team on 8 March for Art of Displacement, the first Performance Parkour Symposium for practitioners and teachers. see page 21 for details.

30 cecil Street
By dan canham Dan’s solo performance is a love letter to an abandoned theatre in Ireland, with a soundtrack of voices, everyday sounds and ambient noise. An eloquent, heartbreaking elegy blended with gentle humour, the piece mourns the passing of a building and celebrates the life it once had. Dan Canham will be leading a masterclass on 21 February – see page 22 for details.

Bored with life, the monotony of the everyday and trying to find his place in the world, one man searches for the next high, the next hit, the next big thing … Unpredictable, fierce and tender at the same time, all-male 2Faced Dance Company are using their trademark urban contemporary language to connect with audiences and strike at the soul. They return with their new full-length group work, choreographed by Artistic Director Tamsin Fitzgerald. 2Faced Dance Company will be leading a masterclass on 14 March - see page 22 for details.

refugees of the Septic Heart reflects the heartbeat of a nation as it perches on the brink of change. At times philosophical and provocative, five dancers search for a society freed of greed, manipulation and control. Gritty physicality and decaying urban sounds evolve into an optimistic undercurrent of mischievous, spirited and irrepressible movement. Inspired by music producer Shackleton’s undulating rhythms, snaking percussions and hypnotic melodies, Tom Dale Company unites digital animation, spoken word and inventive choreography in a feast of visuals, movement and music. Tom Dale will be leading a masterclass on 27 March – see page 22 for details.

Students will participate in a technique class, learn repertoire and work on creative tasks to produce a mini-performance piece. This could then be developed, rehearsed and submitted for our Spotlight Showcase in June 2013. if you’d like to know more about the workshops available and would like your school to take part, please contact our youth and education coordinator:

Parkour began 23 years ago with a group of friends playing games in a Parisian suburb. It is now recognised as the fastest growing urban discipline of all time with practitioners on every continent. A household word, viewed on screens big and small, its influences are being seen in a range of contemporary performances from large scale movie stunt work to small scale dance and theatre.

In the first of our three sets of Continued Professional Development for dance teachers this year, Motionhouse Dance Theatre join us to give a fresh insight to the GCSe set work, Perfect. For school dance teachers and freelance artists alike, come and experience a new way of teaching the piece from the perspective of those who created it. Price is inclusive of a resource pack on Perfect.

The Urban Playground Team coined the phrase “Performance-Parkour” to describe the discipline’s presence in choreography. This symposium will bring together key practitioners, including Parkour co-creator Malik Diouf, Being Frank’s Dave McKenna, Trinity Laban’s veronica Jobbins and Storror Athletes’ Sacha Powell to discuss and present their work. How can Parkour be taught in an artistic context? What does the future hold for this new form? With interviews, discussions and a masterclass from Malik Diouf, this event is aimed at dance practitioners interested in working with Parkour, ‘Traceurs’ interested in creating performances, and teachers of both disciplines interested in utilising Parkour to engage with young people’s creativity.

Coevo is our adult Contemporary Dance company for the dance enthusiast interested in professional dance training and wanting to continue developing technical and creative skills. The term will end with a performance in the Pavilion Dance Cabaret (see page 14).

arturo robles teaches contemporary, Ballet and Jazz Dance, and, together with sioda martin, runs coevo, our adult contemporary Dance company here at pavilion Dance. Born in mexico city, he has worked and toured widely in latin america, the usa and europe as a dancer, actor, choreographer and teacher, before he started working with us in 2010. Arturo didn’t become a dancer straight away. His first degree was in Social Anthropology and Psychology, but life led him down a different path and he subsequently studied drama, theatre and dance in Mexico City, New york and London. His dance training covered a wide range of styles, from Contemporary, Ballet and Jazz Dance to Contact Improvisation, African Dance, Butoh, yoga and T’ai Chi, all of which find their way into his teaching – and he could probably teach all these styles in several different languages, too! His students love his exciting choice of music – from Björk to Dead Can Dance – as well as his humour. Arturo is a very careful and enthusiastic teacher and, when he demonstrates movement, he enjoys showing his students how not to do it, which leads to quite a few laughout-loud moments in class – and a great learning experience!

Supporting artiStS
Karla Shacklock by Maggie Farmer

For us supporting dance artists and companies is all about taking time to develop meaningful relationships, understanding each other and sharing a vision.
We want to support and present work which people will want to watch and want to keep watching. it is therefore likely to be visceral and exciting to be in a space with. it is likely to connect with audiences and be about something relevant to them. We recognise that each artist and company is unique and always try to create a bespoke package of support that responds to their needs and enables them to test out new ideas and take creative risks in order to develop exhilarating and compulsive experiences for audiences.

as an example of this relationship building here is the story of how we are working with Bristol-based dance artist, Karla shacklock, who featured on the front of our autumn 2012 brochure:
2008/9: We first encounter Karla and her work at the edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008 and then touring as part of the creative team of Precarious Dance Theatre Company in 2009. Feb 2012: We see Karla’s first solo performance, 31 years, at a work in progress event in Bath. may 2012: We meet Karla in Bristol, drink hot chocolate and chat about her new idea, The Buttercup. July 2012: We agree to co commission The Buttercup in partnership with Swindon Dance, The Tobacco Factory (Bristol) and Bristol Ferment, each committing a small amount of money, rehearsal studio space, organisational support and critical feedback. september 2012: Karla spends a week in our Seafront Studio researching and developing The Buttercup, playing with grass seed, yellow rubber gloves and garden groundsheets! During the week she leads company class each morning for local professional dancers and at the end of the week she shares her performance ideas so far with those dancers and with our staff who offer honest and thoughtful feedback from an audience perspective.

When artists are in residence with us we often offer them the opportunity to have a professional visual artist in the studio to observe and create new art work in response to the dance being developed. Karla jumped at the chance and Maggie Farmer spent the week with her, capturing the emotional and physical qualities that Karla was exploring through The Buttercup. These artworks were then exhibited in our Autumn 2012 dance inspired exhibition. october 2012: A more developed version of The Buttercup was presented at Tobacco Factory in Bristol and we were there, offering critical feedback, celebrating what was strong and striking and suggesting ideas for further development. november 2012: More hot chocolate was shared in Bristol as Karla outlined development plans for her company and pitched ideas of how our partnership could be most valuable. December 2012: The Buttercup was presented at Hatch & Scratch, our platform for performance in development to be shared with public audiences and useful feedback was offered in a facilitated post show chat. 2013: Pavilion Dance South West has committed to being a partner to support the organisational development of Karla Shacklock Dance Company across the next two years, to co-commission a new piece to accompany The Buttercup on a national tour and to engage in a dialogue to support her dance practice and creative collaborations.

“i could feel myself physically reacting and responding emotionally to both sound and vision as i worked and i thought Karla might like to be aware of that – so i told her afterwards.” maggie Farmer

“it was wonderful to meet with local dancers and share practice and having Maggie, working in a different medium alongside me, to bounce ideas off, was fantastic!” Karla shacklock

“...this project is proving to be an example of how one thing just keeps leading to another.”
the dance matters South west action network is building a strong coalition of individuals and organisations who share a passion for dance and its development, facilitated by pavilion Dance south West. We all try to ensure that as many people as possible from all walks of life have the opportunity to practise, watch and learn about dance and to develop their skills and interests. We meet regularly to share information and ideas. one of our key objectives is to support innovative partnership projects which work with children and young people through our co-investment initiative. as a result of this scheme there will be four fantastic opportunities across the south west for dancers, dance practitioners and dance teachers to come together to discuss and develop dance in 2013, called Dancenet. What we didn’t anticipate was the added value arising out of this project – we now also intend to bring Cornwall-based Cscape Dance Company’s fantastic 2010 outdoor performance, venus Flower, back to the two properties at the same time. This works brilliantly because at least four of our dance artists were also performers in the original production, so it all joins up rather well! And as if that were not enough, Trelissick has now asked if we can put together a team of professional dancers for their Christmas celebration events. So this project is proving to be an example of how one thing just keeps leading to another. The project kicked off on 23 November with a ‘sandpit’ enquiry day at University College Falmouth provocatively titled Would it Matter if Our Children Stopped Dancing?, with speakers Siobhan Davies MBe, Professor Mick Waters and Marie McCluskey MBe.” For more details contact

one of our co-investment initiatives is hothouse dance project in cornwall, designed to nurture dance in primary schools:
“Our project focuses on the challenge of re-invigorating the presence and profile of creative dance in primary schools in Cornwall. The core idea is pretty simple: to bring experienced and talented dance artists into schools, working with interested teachers and focussing on making inspired performance work for interesting places.

We now have 32 schools working with us and a team of ‘shadow’ dance artists, who want to develop primary dance skills, working alongside the lead dance team. The ‘interesting places’ are two fantastic National Trust gardens – Cotehele House near Liskeard and Trelissick Gardens near Truro. The gardens and their back stories become the creative driver for the making of dance and allow the schools to build the properties into their curriculum plans for the summer.
