Greenwich Dance presents Talking Moves, the podcast where artists come together to share practice, experience and ideas. Designed for dance professionals, we put artists centre stage, upfront, in the spotlight, at the microphone so they can talk about the ideas and issues that move them.

In this episode, we talk to Annie Hanauer and Erion Kruja about Creating an Identity. For many dancers it’s a dream to secure a long term contract within a prestigious dance company, but there comes a time when it just feels right to move on. So what happens when you fly that nest – leaving the safety of a regular wage, daily class, regular perform…
 
In this episode we talk to Alesandra Seutin and Temujin Gill about making work with young people. With this series we have been particularly interested in delving into choreographic approaches to different types of work – we have looked at work outdoors, for families, for digital technologies. But what happens when your cast are all under 25? How d…
 
In this episode we talk to Claire Cunningham and Jorge Crecis about choreographic approaches. The life of a choreographer is a complex one and on this podcast the reliance artists have on portfolio careers has come up in conversation a number of times. So we invited two inspirational and entrepreneurial choreographers to come and talk to us who hav…
 
In this episode we talk to Liv Lorent and Arthur Pita about creating dance for families.

But pioneering leaders in the sector, such as Emma Gladstone and her children’s dance festival Offspring at The Place, set about to change that – sp…

In this episode, we talk to Frauke Requardt and Luca Silvestrini about making work for the outdoors. Artists have long been making work to animate places and spaces and there is much for them to consider when they do. The work has to sit within the setting, engage with passersby who perhaps are not expecting, or even asking, to be engaged with. But…
 
In this episode we talk to Seeta Patel and Wayne Parsons about the relationship between organisation - be they venues, companies, agencies - and artists.

In this episode we talk to Zoie Golding and Anthony Missen about the ways in which artists make a difference and the metrics we measure this by.

They discuss ‘insiders’ – their loyal curators, artists, audience and …
 
In this episode we talk to Charlotte Edmonds and Andrew Gardiner about resilience. The government told us recently that dance was not a viable career, and whilst many would strongly dispute that - we probably all acknowledge it’s a difficult, sometimes even punishing choice. So it felt like a good time to check in with some of our dancing workforce…
 
In this episode we talk to Rhiannon Faith and Ben Duke about their experiences of conceiving and creating dance films and we ask them, with the benefit of some experience and hindsight, how they are now approaching the use of technology and the digital experience as they conceive their next work. We discuss the uncanny similarity between the themes…
 
In this episode we talk to Ingrid Molinos and Tory East about running a youth dance company during a global pandemic.

In this episode we talk to Katie Green and Ivan Blackstock about the ways in which they have been breaking from the conventional and working in exciting new ways… creating new partnerships, new audiences and new platforms for their work.

In this episode we talk to Maria Ghoumrassi and Wendy Steatham about the ways in which they have adapted their teaching to accommodate the need to be online. They discuss their initial fears and approaches, the ways in which they have explored the functionality and played with the format, how they structure their classes: stripping back to fundamen…
 
In this episode we talk to John Darvell and Emma Houston about the challenges of staying creative through Covid.
