Dance! The Most Incredible Thing about Contemporary Dance

Documentary in which Charles Hazlewood explores contemporary dance and actively participates in it to find his own way into a greater understanding of an often misunderstood genre.

Charles Hazlewood first encountered contemporary dance in his early teens - an experience he describes as visceral. Since then he has pursued a career in music and, whilst he has conducted for movement, he has never had the opportunity to explore it in any depth - until now. In this illuminating programme, Charles immerses himself in the world of contemporary dance, actively participating in it, to discover how movement works for him and to find his own way into a greater understanding of it. Guiding him are exponents from the contemporary dance world, including Jonzi D, Caroline Bowditch, Richard Alston, Mayuri Boonham, Lea Anderson and Janet Smith, who provide their own passions and insights into an often misunderstood genre.
