The Place Prize: celebrating the best in contemporary dance

20th July 2012


The choreographer and the former radiologist and knitwear designer, who are Place Prize semi-finalists, talk to Diana Damian about their piece Athletes, which explores the relationship between the human body and the machine. The piece draws inspiration from both athleticism and from Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film masterpiece 2001 Space Odyssey. First part of our series about The Place Prize for dance Semi-Finals, which is at The Place, Robin Howard Dance Theatre, from 6–22 September 2012. Recorded at The Place, 3 July 2012.

I like to think about choreography as a visual art. I like to think that it is a series of frames, a series of images that follow one another.
