Three To See 2011: International dance pieces

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends three dance pieces from international theatre companies performing at the Edinburgh Fringe 2011.

Interno 10/B
This looks quite appealing; ten is a house number, and ten callers come to a door. The producers promise ten “life changing moments” on the doorstep, as evoked through dance. The basis sounds mundane and domestic, but I think that’s probably the point.
C, 3 – 13 Aug, 6.00pm (7.00pm), £7.50 – £11.50, fpp172.

Moving On
This piece is by Dance Ihayami, and we’ve given them great reviews in the past, so I feel pretty confident about recommending this show. The group specialise in Indian classical dance, and this production places it in a contemporary setting, combined with music and film.
Zoo Roxy, 18 – 27 Aug, 9.45pm (10.40pm), £8.00 – £9.00, fpp173.

Producing company CoisCéim Dance Theatre are double Fringe First winners, so I think it’s reasonable to expect good things. This duet looks as heart-warming and moving as the group claim.
Dance Base, 5 – 21 Aug, times vary, £7.00, fpp177.
