It’s Resolution! time again, and this means one thing for The Place; the annual festival of new works by diverse emerging dance-artists. Resolution! has been a starting point for artists such as Russell Maliphant, Mark Baldwin, Wayne McGregor, Charlotte Vincent, Jasmin Vardimon and Hofesh Shechter.

Every evening during the festival, there are three short pieces where you get to see a snap shot of brand new work. Being part of the festival’s audience is being part of a dialogue with artists as they try out ideas for the first time.

It’s Resolution!’s 25th edition this year and will run from Tue 14 Jan until Sat 15 Feb 2014 featuring over 70 works presented in nightly changing triple bills.

Resolution! Review is written by six leading dance critics and a cohort of nine new and aspiring dance writers who are mentored by their professional counterparts.This year the dance critics are Josephine Leask, Donald Hutera, Sanjoy Roy, Graeme Watts, Keith Watson and Lyndsey Winship. Reviews of each work in Resolution! will be published, usually within 24 hours of the performance.

The festival will take place at The Place’s Robin Howard Dance Theatre, 17 Duke’s Road, London WC1H 9PY.
