Description

MAPS - Work in progress performance

All maps are a snapshot in time, a fixed interpretation of our world, unable to capture the ebb and flow of people, places and politics. ‘MAPS’ is a dance piece considering the world map through its constantly changing nature, as a moveable image and a portrait of how globalisation and freedom of information have broken our understanding of borders. Three dancers and a live musician bring the world map to life in a continuous, culturally mixed, rhythmic groove.

MAPS, which is conceived and choreographed by Sivan Rubinstein and produced by Tal Weinstein, will be premiered at The Place in October 2017. This work in progress performance is part of Pivot Dance, a three-year project looking at the value of creating dance performances in consultation with audiences, artists and producers funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and Arts Council of England. This project is running simultaneously at The Place (UK), CSC Centro per la Scena contemporanea di Bassano del Grappa (Italy) and Nederlandse Dansdagen (The Netherlands), and will culminate in the creation of six brand new dance shows made with the help of an ‘Audience Club’ in each country.

With collaboration from academic researchers, MAPS is supported by Dr Sarah Fine, from the Department of Philosophy at King’s College London, who has contributed inspiration to our research.

Join us at King’s to explore how the political map looks today and what it might look like in the future through this exciting performance. The company will perform a 25 minute extract of the piece, followed by a Q&A led by Christina Elliot, Senior Producer at The Place.
