Possibly the most colourful & vibrant Urban Moves we have had, helping celebrate the opening weekend of the London Olympics. With 5 Urban Moves commissions spread across Greater Manchester, free dance took over the most unusual places in Bolton, Bury, Salford & Manchester City Centre. We even welcomed our first Asian dance companies, all the way from South Korea. Alongside a water based performance by Studio Eclipse was Dance Channels, an international partnership between Zaragoza, Manchester & Genova. The project created cross-cultural collaboration through encounters and creative laboratories. Besides being part of Urban Moves, the pieces also featured at Trayectos, Zaragoza, and Corpi Urbani, Genova.
