Returning for its 24th edition, Resolution! is at The Place from Tue 8 January to Friday 15 February, showcasing the work of 81 dance companies in nightly triple bills, in the biggest festival for new dance in the UK. What makes Resolution! one of the best loved seasons for short new dance is the sheer quantity and diversity of the pieces included: over the course of 27 nights, emerging choreographers will have the chance to present their new productions on the Robin Howard Dance Theatre's stage, following the steps of Wayne McGregor, Hofesh Shechter, Kate Prince, and more recently James Wilton, James Cousins, and Nina Kov (Place Prize Semi-Finalist 2012), just to name a few dance artists who have started out their choreographic career during Resolution! Among this year's 81 participants, performers currently dancing with some of the UK's best dance companies, as well as renowned independent dance artists, will take the stage. Wayne McGregor, Random Dance's Paolo Mangiola and Benjamin Ord will present Take me home and make me like that (Fri 18 Jan); Victoria Hoyland (who danced most recently for Place Prize Finalist Riccardo Buscarini) and Karima El Amrani (Hofesh Shechter Company) will present together We're made of stories. Secrets are safe in stories (Tue 22 Jan); Nathan Goodman, of Richard Alston Dance Company, presents Elsewhere (Fri 25 January); and Ivan Blackstock of Birdgang, who takes the stage with Reverie (Fri 8 Feb), are just some of the artists involved.
