What is it?
Remaining true to their ethos of supporting and promoting the most promising in new and emerging artists, all of whom are unfunded, the festival will be presenting a diverse range of new artists, several choreographers to watch, Cloud Dance Festival regulars, and a number of special guests.
Ella Mesma will be presenting her fierce solo EVOL, which has previously been presented at Breakin’ Convention. Raymond Chai, who has worked with most of the leading ballet and contemporary dance companies in Europe, will be creating a duet with two outstanding dancers for this festival.
Performances by these artists include A Timeless Duet, a duet between BalletBoyz dancer Adam Kirkham – who is soon to join Russell Maliphant’s company – and former Boston Ballet and Zurich Ballet dancer Merritt Moore, which was premiered at TEDx Oxford.
John Ross is one of Cloud Dance Festival’s featured artists; he received a nomination by What’s On Stage for their Best Choreographer Award for his work with Old Vic New Voices, and he has worked with Dance United, Scottish School of Contemporary Dance and the Tom Dale Company.
Further highlights include Cloud Dance Festival favourites Hana Saotome, James Finnemore and Sol Dans, who is collaborating with Great Lake Films to explore the intersection of film and the best in contemporary jazz dance.
