BATCH:2 Experiments in Making

BATCH:2 is the second annual season of Sunday afternoon performances throughout August at The Bakery Studio, Jedburgh.  This year the programme has expanded to include experimental studio performances, dance screenings and dance installations and  brings together many of Scotland’s most innovative and distinguished dance makers to perform works that push at the edges of contemporary dance. The thread running through the programme is an exploration of different ways of making, performing and presenting including movement scores, collaborative working and improvisational structures. Several of the performances include live music and audiences are invited to stay for post- performance conversations over tea and coffee, which opens the work up for discussion.

Artists include Tim Rubidge, Audicia Lynne Morley, In the Making, air field collective, Merav Israel and Dudendance.
