The Place Prize Commissions


h2dance (founded in 1999) presents the joint choreography of Artistic Directors Hanna Gillgren and Heidi Rustgaard. They produce provocative performance work that addresses political and gender issues with humour and emotion. The company works in collaboration with interdisciplinary teams and local communities to create evocative performances that challenge and respond to the audience.

This new work looks at issues around partnerships in a personal, social and political context. The work aims to deconstruct our duet, basing it on both autobiographical and documentary material. Duet asks questions about the art of dance, us as individuals and duo as well as professional partnerships in a wider context.

Duet is one of four works selected for The Finals of The Place Prize for dance and can be seen at The Place from Wed 17 - Sat 27 April 2013 (book tickets)
