From 24 to 27 April I’ll be one of the writing team at Aerowaves Spring Forward festival in Umeå, Sweden, which presents 25 companies from 21 countries across Europe.
It’s part of a new Spring Forward initiative called Spring Back – essentially, critical responses to the performances. Along with dance critics Donald Hutera (Times) and Margareta Sörenson, I’ll be writing flash reviews over the festival, and mentoring aspiring dance writers. Expect rapid-fire responses, opinions and reviews online from Friday evening onwards. There will also be a live stream of perfomances on Saturday 26 April on artstreamingtv.com, broadcast time: 14:00–22:00 (Sweden is 1hr ahead of GMT).
