Dancing on the tele

Joan's duo Dreamt for Light Years featured in the new BBC 4 documentary Dance! The Most Incredible Thing about Contemporary Dance. Conductor Charles Hazlewood explored contemporary dance together with some of the leading members of the dance community in the UK in an effort to bring the art form to a wider audience. 

The BBC crew visited Scottish Dance Theatre's headquarters at Dundee Rep Theatre, where SDT's artistic director Janet Smith introduced several extracts of the company's repertory to a group of local people.

If you are in the UK, you can watch the full documentary on BBC iPlayer for a limited time.

You can also have a look at this clip from the Italian news featuring the site specific performance of In-boscati at the festival Il Giardino delle Eperidi. For this work Joan collaborated with SDT dancer Jori Kerremans and jazz musician Adalberto Ferrari among other artists.
