RDF #12: A SERIES OF BEGINNINGS
27TH – 30TH AUGUST 2014
Over the course of one long weekend in August – Wednesday 27th – Saturday 30th (to be precise) – RDF will set forth the blueprint for an on–going conversation with dancing and choreography – that we hope to see deepened and expanded upon – among audiences and artists alike – throughout all the editions to come.
Now – as you may already know – August will also mark the birth of a new format for RDF. A format that will see us host not one, but four micro–festivals a year (August, November, February and June). We want to be more than a festival you know – we want to be an all year round conversation.
So to kickstart this conversation we so deeply desire – we will begin with the artists that are already here – with those artists that have, over the last 12 years, been cut from the RDF cloth.
As well as a day–time programme of radio–broadcasted lectures by domestic artists, workshops, forums, and publication launches – RDF will present no less than 12 new works by Icelandic choreographers.
As such – the blueprint for the conversation we want to be having will not be drawn up by us alone – but by the artists and audiences that congregate through and around the festival. By our shared doing, making, saying and thinking.
