First Look offers a first glimpse of the three works-in-progress by exciting dance companies that will be performed in full to launch the Spring Dancin’ Oxford Festival 2019 in the Moving With the Times showcase in March. Each work-in-progress run at this January preview will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.

Richard Chappell Dance with his new work Still Touch examines the relationship between dance and life-sized sculpture using his unique approach to ballet, improvisation, floor work and partner work.

Moon Dances is Jann Esterhuizen’s choreographic exploration of classical ideas and forms in collaboration with composer, Edward Farmer.

Joe Lott’s original brand of energising, innovative dance and storytelling, reveals two dancers take on micro-gravity and mythology in EVA, NASA-speak for spacewalking.

A reminder of the forthcoming Dance Scratch Night presented by Oxford Dance Forum (ODF) in partnership with Arts at the Old Fire Station) on 27th March.  These occasions provide a great opportunity to see work-in-progress by local dancers and groups, and contribute to a feedback discussion with the artists (guided by a facilitator).  Most of the artists presenting are recipients of ODF financial support (through the Evolution programme), which has helped them to develop these dances.

This occasion includes pieces by Ségolène Tarte, Smidgen Dance Company, Jenny Parrott & Unlock the Chains Collective.

Do come along to support the artists, and enjoy a great evening of emerging dance.

Performance:  Tuesday 27th March, 7.30pm

Venue:  Old Fire Station, 40 George Street, Oxford OX1 2AQ

Tickets:  £5 through the OFS box office in advance online here or on the door.
