Re-Framing Dance considered in what ways independent producers can be supported to enhance the current presentation of dance in the gallery.
This project utilised the city of Nottingham and its enviable and vibrant museum and visual art sector, with the potential to realise an extraordinary range of works and practices.
Galleries are increasingly a site for the public to witness, explore and even participate in choreographic practices. They are sites where artists working in this field seek to develop and present their work. Stemming from Dance4’s philosophy of curiosity, risk and doubt, the project asked, what can be realised by independent artists if producers provide skills and capacity to bring about new work in the gallery?
