It is crucial to remember that multiple artistic scenes co-existed in a compressed urban environment. Chisenhale Dance Space actively engages a community of artists, removed from the insular, inbred commercial factories. Sitting in a meeting with socially conscious dance warriors including Rosemary Lee fresh from her excellent ‘Square Dances’, i was frustrated about the state of the dance scene yet inspired by the resolutley defiant attitudes on how to keep art true and support artists that are hitting new beats (Bryonny Kimmings, Joseph Mercier) and fundementally changing attitudes on how to make performance. I fucking love Chisenhale, the people the artists the scene… it deserves your Love too.
