Welcome to Cloud Dance Friends, a combination of an evening of contemporary dance and a birthday bash. It will also mark the one-year anniversary of the last Cloud Dance Festival, Showtime, so let's also hold a toast to its memory and raise a glass to Cloud Dance Festival's extra-shiny year ahead!
Cloud Dance Friends will be presenting a mixture of artists who have previously been showcased by Cloud Dance Festival (Autin Dance Theatre, Off The Map and Gerrard Martin Dance), artists who have previously performed in Cloud Dance Festival (Hal Hub, performing in John Ross Dance's Wolfpack in July and November 2013), and also two companies new to Cloud Dance Festival, Subtle Kraft Co and Spoken Movement.
For details of the full lineup, please visit Cloud Dance Friends.
Cloud Dance Friends will be held at London's New Diorama Theatre on Sunday 16 November at 7.30pm, and we are offering a discounted ticket price for dance artists so that this can be an evening to share with our friends. We hope to see you there!

As I mentioned previously, I'm currently seeking advice across the industry on how to make Cloud Dance Festival relevant to dance artists' needs, and so I've put together a survey asking some of the key questions I need your feedback on, for example about how people create work, what their creative process is, and what support people receive and would like to receive.
Every response provides me with invaluable insights into how people work and what needs to be done to offer the support they need, so I would be very grateful if you can take the time to fill it out. Many thanks!
