Cloud Dance Friends

calvin hobbesWelcome 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!
