Thomas Noone Dance hosted the inaugural Dancing Partners event programmed in Barcelona in from the 9th to the 14th of September, 2013. This opening event brought together TND, Company Chameleon and Norrdans and was extended to three additional companies, Marc Brew Dance Company from the U.K., Company E from the U.S.A. and Ando Danse Compagnie from France. The aim was to enhance the interchange of ideas and offer the public a rich and diverse program of artistic and outreach activities.
The event centred on three mixed bill performances in the Sant Andreu Teatre (SAT!) that opened the SAT!’s 2013-2014 season and was accompanied by activities designed to benefit the participating companies and others directed at both the general public and risk groups in the area. Amongst these are two days of investigative intracompany workshops in the GRANER-Philips, a creation space in the Zona Franca, lead by a different company each day.
