Resolution! is The Place's annual festival of new works presented by a range of diverse emerging dance-artists. It has been a starting point for artists such as Russell Maliphant, Mark Baldwin, Wayne McGregor, Charlotte Vincent, Jasmin Vardimon and Hofesh Shechter.
For every evening of the festival there are three short pieces where you get to see a snap shot of brand new work. Being part of an audience for Resolution! is being part of a dialogue with artists as they try out ideas for the first time.

With a vibrancy and tenderness between them, the pair skilfully lure the audience into the heart of their poetic world. Performer and choreographer, Fortier is internationally renowned for dance that is marked by innovation, renewal and a desire to defy convention.
Running on Empty is the story of Man, Woman and their repeated collision over time. Absurd and sometimes devastating, it is about resilience, struggle and our determination to survive.
