EXCERPT // Moving Meetings Dance/Dutch Dance Festival

[…] at Moving Meetings Dance artists were invited to sell themselves and their work to a large and influential live audience without having the chance to perform much, if any, choreography at all. Pitches were made with one eye on a ticking clock; most artists used the time to present a video clip and simultaneously narrate the images on screen. One choreographer underlined his affordability. Wordless Dario Tortorelli had his audience put on sunglasses as he strutted slow motion out of the room with the hope we might feel almost as suave as his on-stage alter ego, Romeo Heart, looks. The pitches were complemented by an additional programme of young choreographers who were given the enviable chance to stage part of a work in a studio theatre.
