Whats on This Spring At Chisenhale

True to its roots Chisenhale Dance Space continues to challenge perceptions and understandings of what dance and performance can be.


Thursday 5th + Friday 6th February
Performances from 7pm

Visionhale is a mini-festival of performance lectures by dance artists illuminating issues close to their hearts. Hosted at Chisenhale Dance Space over two nights, Visionhale poses as a springboard and landing pad for various danced acts of enquiry and advocacy. After each lecture performance the subject in hand will be further explored through a brief group conversation in which audience members are welcome to put their observations, thoughts and questions to the presenting artists.
