About Juncture 2016

Juncture 2016 was curated by artist Gillie Kleiman, who selected works – most made with non-professional performers – to be staged in a range of venues around Leeds from 25 – 30 October.

The artists and companies taking part included Quarantine, Nicola Conibere, Sara Lindström, Lucy Suggate, immigrants and animals and Fitzgerald & Stapleton.

Gillie explained her artistic intent for Juncture 2016:

“The community dance movement, folk dance, YouTube dance classes and Strictly all tell us the same thing: everybody dances. Departing from here, this edition of Juncture collects together artworks where the role of the professional dancer is given to someone else, bringing artists, participants and their shared work into conversation about what happens when the dancing is handed over.”

Many of the performances and events were free of charge, and happened in public places or venues not usually associated with dance.
