Debate

We’re inviting technology companies to discuss the use of technology in the dance world, and encouraging dance companies to come together to shape the future of the industry.

"Mourad has since gone on to be one of the most intriguing figures on the British dance scene, challenges the very nature of what you think a dance performance will look like."
