Dance Art Foundation has suspended its performance, participatory and public programmes in support of social distancing and in solidarity with those who will be most affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. Our postponed Whitechapel Gallery performances will hopefully be presented later this year. Further news and information on resuming our work will be posted here and on social media as confirmed. Wishing you, your family and your communities all the best in these difficult times.
Dance Art Foundation is an independent arts charity working at the intersections between dance, visual art, social engagement and artist advocacy. Led by Artistic Director Joe Moran (artist and choreographer) with trustees Martin Hargreaves (dramaturge), Martin Richard Coppell (curator) and Robyn Cabaret (producer) and a national network of independent artists, curators and supporters, Dance Art Foundation incubates new ideas and extends the boundaries of dance, performance and choreography.
Forthcoming events include a three-part performance commission by Artistic Director Joe Moran at Whitechapel Gallery (March-May-July 2020), our 2019-2020 Artist-Curator-Leader advocacy project and consultations on Dance4’s international dance strategy, Dance from England. Recent performances include Sadler’s Wells (November 2019), NottDance Festival (October 2019), Norfolk & Norwich Festival at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery (May 2019), The Lowry (March-April 2019), Wysing Arts Centre (November 2018), Bluecoat Centre for Contemporary Arts (October 2018) and Kettle’s Yard for fig-futures (September 2018).
Our national Breathing Space dance-in-health programme continues throughout 2020 in hospital and hospice contexts in London and the South East, the North and North East of England with support from BBC Children in Need and the National Lottery. Our most recent film may be viewed online here.
