Cardiff Dance Festival is thrilled to have secured support from Wales Arts International and the British Council for the Interruption project. Part of India Wales, a major season of artistic collaboration between the two countries to mark the UK-India Year of Culture, Interruption will see artists from Basement 21 in Chennai working hand in hand with artists from Wales.

The project will culminate in a performance day in Cardiff city centre on Friday the 17th of November. Further details will be announced in October.

Productions confirmed for the festival include: Liz Roche Company’s Wrongheaded (Chapter, 8 November); National Dance Company Wales’ Roots (Dance House, 13 &14 November); Jo Fong’s Ways of Being Together (Chapter, 19 November); Compagnie Philippe Saire’s Black Out (Dance House, 10 & 11 November); Barrowland Ballet’s Poggle (Wales Millennium Centre, 10 & 11 November) and Karl Jay-Lewin and Matteo Fargion’s Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music (Chapter, 14 November). 

Alongside ticketed performances, there will be a number of ways in which people will be able to experience the work of dance artists through open studio and public spaces events.

These include maribée – sors de ce corps and Montréal Danse, who will be working on their new production – BESIDE. This event will be a free open studio event taking place on Wednesday 15 November at 4pm.

CDF17 is supported by the Arts Council of Wales. Lead festival partners are Chapter, National Dance Company Wales and Wales Millennium Centre. This year the festival is also working with the City of Cardiff Council, Groundwork Pro, Migrations and South Wales University on different aspects of the programme.

Cardiff Dance Festival was launched in 2015 and featured work by leading Wales-based companies and practitioners including National Dance Company Wales, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Eddie Ladd, alongside exemplary work from acclaimed UK and international artists such as ZooNation, Dana Michel and Igor and Moreno.

Cardiff Dance Festival is programmed by Chris Ricketts and project managed by Fieldwork. Chris Ricketts said: “It’s great to be back with a second festival. We had a fantastic response in 2015 and, with the breadth of things taking place, this year’s programme feels even stronger and more international. It’s going to be a cracking twelve days discovering some wonderful dance from around the world.”

Rebecca Gould, Head of Arts, British Council Wales said: “Cardiff Dance Festival is a valued addition to the city’s portfolio of artistic events. We’re delighted that, through India Wales and the Year of Culture, Cardiff Dance Festival has been able to collaborate so successfully with Chennai’s Basement21 and broaden the international element of this year’s Festival.”
