Dates: 14th – 17th July 2016

On what is International Dance Day – the yearly celebration whose primary purpose is to attract the attention of the wider public to the art of dance – Latitude Festival reveals its spectacular dance line-up.
The curator of the Latitude Festival Arts Arenas Tania Harrison says:
“Latitude are absolutely delighted to be supporting artists across the board, and this year is no exception when it comes to our stunning dance line up. Sadler’s Wells will present a diverse programme of world class dance including Nilda’s Guerra’s !Vamos Cuba!, straight from Havana airport and evoking all the vibrancy of Cuban life, plus rising star Botis Seva who literally has the world at his feet. The incredible Hofesh Shechter Company will perform tHE bAD – a captivatingly dramatic dance piece, to get the festival going on Thursday night. We will also welcome New English Ballet Theatre to the Waterfront, who will present work by choreographers Kirsten McNally and Daniela Cardim.”
Further additions to this year’s incredible bill will include a double presentation from the Richard Alston Dance Company. Richard Alston is a former Resident Choreographer and Artistic Director for the Ballet Rambert and now the Artistic Director at The Place, and his company will perform extracts from the Sadler’s Wells commission Nomadic, danced to Shukar Collective’s fusion of gypsy and electronic music.
Additions to the theatre programme will include Jane Horrocks and the band from Young Vic show If You Kiss Me, Kiss Me; Theatre Ad Infinitum performing Bucket List and a performance from the Berlin-based theatre collective Familie Floz
In music news, the celebrated Belgian electro-dance outfit Soulwax will appear at Latitude for a UK festival exclusive, headlining the 6 Music Stage. Other acts who are now scheduled to appear in Suffolk for this 11th annual edition of the event include the former Beta Band member Steve Mason, electronic producer Gold Panda, American indie-rock band Augustines and the hotly-tipped revenge pop artist The Anchoress.
