Common danceRosemary Lee’s Common Dance for this year’s Dance Umbrella festival was a big success – sold out at Gda every performance with long waiting list for returns, it was a shame more people couldn’t share what was, we were told by many, a ‘moving’ and ‘powerful’ experience. The Guardian’s Sanjoy Roy reviewed it with four stars and there are plans to use the extensive footage recorded during the making of the piece into a documentary but meantime watch a promo-podcast made by The Guardian.

Otherwise there are some beautiful photographs shot at the dress rehearsal here. Being a part of this project was a momentous joy and a real highlight of my 2009, as well as moving my development as a performer into a different realm. See some more photos or view a beautiful book of photos online.
