Spring LoadedSpring Loaded, The Place's annual festival of contemporary dance, bounces back to London this May, showcasing new talent in the dance world. Laila Diallo kicks off the festival on 11th May with a piece which explores themes of migration and displacement. This modern physical theatre piece is just a taster of the exciting array of dance you'll find at the Spring Loaded festival which runs from 11th May to 22nd June. Since launching in 1987, Spring Loaded has been a spring board for many household names including Matthew Bourne, Wayne McGregor (resident choreographer of The Royal Ballet) and DV8 artistic director Lloyd Newson. This year's programme includes James Cousins' There We Have Been, a duet where the female character barely ever touches the floor, a new work by 2010 Sadler's Wells Global Dance Contest winner James Wilton, and a performance by this year's Place Prize winner Riccardo Buscarini who combines dance with a live gig in a performance about memories, motherhood, and hot pink knitwear.
