Diana Vishneva's Context festival

Gala-concert of the Mind and Movement programme. New Holland Island

Be sure to save the date for our gala concert on August 25, dedicated to the results of the Mind and Movement program jointly held by the Context festival and Studio Wayne McGregor.

New Holland Island will host seven premieres of new productions by emerging Russian choreographers based on Mind and Movement — the research of a renowned UK choreographer, Wayne McGregor.

Last autumn, choreographers participated in an intensive two-day Mind and Movement workshop and some of them won grants to create and stage new work in their home city.

The gala concert will determine the winner who will receive an internship at Studio Wayne McGregor in London.

Mind and Movement is a unique educational resource which is grounded in a decade of collaborative research with cognitive scientists. Wayne McGregor designed a unique set of tools intended to develop students' personal imagination skills in order to enhance the creation of new and original dance movement and find their own choreographic style.

Tickets will be available soon. Stay tuned!
