BSDC is a busy company well known for bringing together disparate themes or styles, and working in non traditional ways.
As it has matured as an National Portfolio of Arts Council England, the company has embraced these strengths by enthusiastically pushing into new territory, creating a repertoire of innovative pieces that brings high quality work to new audiences.
Exciting new partnerships led to an explosion of performances, with new work and existing repertoire both gaining exposure at a pace rarely seen, even for BSDC.
With a stunning performance of the company’s well-known Decreasing Infinity at British Dance Edition in Cardiff, the company was soon hard at work developing an important new piece for Southbank’s Alchemy. This entailed bringing together two of Balbir’s major creative influences – his guru and his contemporary dancer teacher – to create Learning to Dance, an exciting intergenerational and intercultural work that speaks to contemporary audiences on a number of levels.
