Thursday 3 & Friday 4 June 2021

  • Events from 3 & 4 June stayed recorded on the event platform for the duration of the festival 3 – 13 June 2021 offering flexibility for delegates to view.

ODC21: UK Dance Showcase was devised in collaboration and delivered in partnership with XTRAX as part of Platform 4:UK; Dance4 as part of Dance from England; and DanceXchange, producers of BIDF.

It presented a showcase of current choreographic practice for outdoor and site-responsive work. The showcase programme provided opportunities for artists, programmers and professionals working in outdoor dance around the world to attend panel discussions and artists pitching sessions and other networking opportunities, available via a virtual event platform called Pheedloop.

Artists pitching include Humanhood, Jeanefer Jean-Charles, Stefan Jovanović, Akademi, Alleyne Dance and more, with speakers such Gilles Doré (International Development Director at CINARS), Gintare Masteikaite (Artistic Director of New Baltic Festival) and Tena Busquets (Artistic Director of Sismògraf Festival) discussing dance in public space across Europe and North America, plus international networking opportunities.

National and international delegates also had access to the Outdoor Dance Collection 2021 Catalogue presenting a curated selection of some of the most exciting current outdoor work available for touring by UK dance artists.
