YDP will be taking part in Transmission, a Performance Symposium

Nov 14, 2014

The company is very excited to be involved in Middlesex University’s Performance Symposium on Saturday the 13th December. We will be performing an excerpt Robert Cohan’s new work “Lingua Franca”. This symposium has been designed to bring together leading practitioners in a performance-focused context in order to present, argue for and celebrate the increasing number of approaches to staging the work of another. The dance field is familiar with the ‘re-‘ preposition and the variety of contexts this offers – re-staging, recreation, reconstruction, re-envisioning, etc. This symposium is an attempt to add a further layer to the wider debate and to offer propositions, as seen through the variant directorial approaches taken to the choreographic works of Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Anna Sokolow, Mark Franko and Robert Cohan. Solo and duet works by these renowned choreographers are the vehicles through which directors explore the transmission processes involved in staging the work of another.
