Hello everyone, I’m Ian Abbott, a writer & producer who works in dance, theatre & performance and lives in Wales. Having been a programmer & director of a dance festival previously I have had the fortune to see a lot of work. These are some of the works & outdoor communal experiences that have stuck with me for their intimacy, exhilaration & asking us to look at the world differently:
Bodies in Urban Spaces (2009) in London by Cie Willi Dorner – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7Qv50sgrds
I programmed it four years later in 2013 in Bournemouth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Yzcn3Avu2s
The Company of Wolves (2014) by Burn The Curtain in Totnes. It was an outdoor, night time adventure for runners and walkers inspired by the Angela Carter novel. https://burnthecurtain.co.uk/wolves/
Rider Spoke (2009) by Blast Theory in Liverpool. https://www.andfestival.org.uk/events/blast-theory-rider-spoke/
