We are at the dawn of a major referendum. As the UK faces a decision to stay in or leave the EU we consider how the same questions are relevant to us as artists?

Are we alone or together? An Island or Continent? In or out?

Where are our borders?

Coreo Cymru is hosting Dance Roads, an international partnership programme supporting the development of choreographers from France, Italy, Romania, the Netherlands and Wales. Before we see the work they created, Groundwork Pro invites dance artists in Wales to meet with their international peers in a roundtable discussion and physical workshop. It is a time for open exchange, provocative questions and play.

What do we need to create an environment in which individual artists can thrive and a vibrant dance community can flourish?

Are the same questions relevant on a personal and global level?

On a micro and macro scale?
