THEATRE BRISTOL PRESENTS TESTING GROUND: EXPERIMENTS IN DANCE IS A CHANCE FOR DANCE ARTISTS TO TEST OUT NEW IDEAS IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE
Testing Ground is a platform for dance artists, emerging or established, to test new performance ideas in front of a live audience. It provides a place for new work to be shown and encourages an opportunity for an open discussion on the work presented.
We aim for the platform to be highly supportive and nurturing for the artists involved, and an interactive opportunity for audiences, offering them an insight into new work. The focus of Testing Ground is dialogue and experiment. It is a platform to present the beginnings and possibilities of work and to share that through dialogue with the audience.
“I am so grateful, to have had an opportunity like that has shown myself and my young performers just how much further we can take the work.” – Harriet Aston, Introducing (Testing Ground, May 2019)
