We are excited to announce the International One Dance UK Conference 2019, Re:generations - dance in the digital space.

With a focus on dance of the African Diaspora (DAD), this event aims to bring the dance community together to stimulate critical debate, share current practice, research and innovation and encourage new perspectives for the future.

The theme for Re:generations 2019 is dance in the digital space. We will explore the ways digital technologies can be used for artistic innovation and creative practice, unite global communities through online platforms whilst increasing the visibility of diverse work to mainstream audiences.

The conference provides an international platform connecting UK artists, practitioners and scholars with global leaders from Africa, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, USA and beyond.

Across the 3 days there will be panel discussions, lecture demonstrations, masterclasses, workshops, academic paper presentations, performances, networking events and more!

The conference will provide dance teachers, healthcare practitioners and other dance professionals, in addition to bespoke programming for producers, new media practitioners and executive artistic leaders. A key event will be the launch of the report for One Dance UK’s ‘Dance of the African Diaspora Mapping Research’; presenting the current state and needs of the DAD workforce with a scope for future growth and development.

Book tour with H Patten and Namron

We presented a panel discussion at IABD in Ohio USA about the book Narratives in Black British Dance: Dr. Adesola Akinleye, H Patten and Namron with moderation from Mercy Nabirye and support from One Dance UK and Middlesex University.

H and Adesola were then on a panel about internationalism with Thomas Talawa Presto and Robert Soloman. Adesola was also on a panel about dance writing (Black Dance Magazine) moderated by Norma Porter.

Following that H and Adesola gave guest lectures at University of Michigan, MI and Adesola also held a guest lecture at the Boston Conservatory, MA. A lot of fun and driving in the snow!!











Dance tour for Early Years Audiences

We are busy in rehearsal for our up-coming tour of dance and music performance work:
'Light Steps' for young audiences 2 to 5+ years and their families.
'Found' for young audiences  4 to 7+ years and their families.
Both performance works have been co-created with young people. Light Steps was inspired by the Turner Contemporary, Margate Summer of Colour exhibit of work by Spencer Finch in 2014. We worked with the Reception classes of a local primary school to research and develop what has now become the performance work 'Light Steps'.

'Found' developed from a larger project working with three Museums and three schools in 2016. This larger project was called the ILA project we again worked with the young people to co-create the story and elements of the final performance work 'Found'. You can see the steps of the making of Found at www.ilaproject.com

We are now in rehearsal getting the artistic team ready for an exciting tour later this year.
