Choreographer and Dance Art Foundation Artistic Director Joe Moran teams up with Block Universe festival to invite Swedish choreographer Mårten Spångberg to London to lead a free one-day Study Lab at Sadler’s Wells Theatre. Mårten Spångberg will also present the UK première of The Internet at the ICA for Block Universe 2016 on Wednesday June 1st in partnership with Dance Art Foundation.

This informal one-day event offers an immersive encounter with the philosophical concerns and complex thinking of Mårten Spångberg’s distinctive and provocative choreographic approach. The Lab will include both dialogue and practice, and forms part of the final event series of Joe Moran/Dance Art Foundation’s two-year research Why Everyone One Wants What We’ve Got focused on the critical acumen of dance.
