We are so excited to announce that our four year partnership with @balticgateshead, which brings dance to galleries, has expanded to form the CONTINUOUS Network, incorporating art institutions from around the country including @the_bluecoat, @nottm_contemp, @the_tetley, @glasgowtramway, @turnercontemporary, @wearedance4 and @yorkshiredancepictures!⁣⁣
Through to 2022, the CONTINUOUS Network will give audiences all over the country access to the best in experimental independent dance and choreography from around the UK. Dance will animate museums, galleries and other spaces – spaces where today’s choreographers want to make and present work and where audiences are curious to encounter the new and unexpected.⁣⁣
CONTINUOUS will publicly launch in October 2019 with the first CONTINUOUS commission by @lucysuggate at BALTIC. The second commission by @zinziminott will premiere at BALTIC and tour from April 2020. ⁣⁣
This collaboration has been generously supported by @aceagrams and John Ellerman Foundation⁣⁣
