Imagined as a space for sharing extended choreographic and embodied practices, our new digital programme features things to watch, read and listen to. We'll be releasing digital seasons three times a year, complimenting the seasons of live work taking place in our theatre. These digital programmes will be created in partnership with independent artists and curators and other organisations. An open call for curatorial ideas will be announced later this year.


Online 16th September to 19th November

Organised in collaboration with FRINGE! Queer Film & Arts Fest, the first season of The Place’s new digital programme explores queer lives and experience through the lens of movement and choreographic practice.

How do we move through the world as queer people? How does the world move us and how are we moved by it?

In queer worlds moving bodies,dance is imagined as a way of expressing desire, exploring fantasy and making the invisible visible. The programmefeatures moving image works by Hadi Moussally, Luis Medel Hernández, Hanna Lappalainen, Thomas Ellis and Pradeep Mahadeshwar, and a series of 'in conversation' podcats, featuring Emilyn Claid and Heidi Rustgaard, Eve Stainton and Leonie Rae Gasson, and Malik Nasad Sharpe and Jamila Johnson Small. These works and conversations are complemented by a new essay by Tobi Adebjao reflecting queer movement and freedom.
