Time: 3pm & 8pm

Venue:  East London Dance at Stratford Circus, Theatre Sq, London, E15 1BX 

Modern dance and contemporary composition take on the energetic excitement of a sporting event in the electrifying 60x60 Dance. This is a one-of-a-kind performance, where each minute of the hour features a new composer and a new choreographer: 60 minutes featuring 60 dance pieces set to 60 one-minute compositions. It might sound like a recipe for sensory overload but 60x60 Dance has got pulses racing since 2007 in the U.S and in Canada. Now 60x60 Dance celebrates its European debut this summer in London on Saturday 24 July.
 
Part of London’s Open Weekend, this dance event of break neck speed and excitement, cannot be better placed than in Stratford - the heart of the developing Olympic City, 60x60 Dance is fitting to celebrate the official two year countdown towards London 2012.

Part of the Vox Novus Festival, 60×60 Dance pairs 60 dance ensembles with 60 composers for 60 one-minute performances synchronized with an analog clock. The one-hour dance extravaganza presents a slice of what is happening in the contemporary music scene and the world of modern dance. Two performances of 60×60 Dance will be presented at the Winter Garden Atrium at Brookfield place in Downtown Manhattan.

Vox Novus celebrates 15 years of presenting new music throughout the world. Vox Novus has premiered thousands works by living composers in more than 30 countries. Its mission is to present the wealth of new music to the masses everywhere.
