Dear friends and colleagues

2013 has been a busy and exiting year for h2dance. The company was finalist in The Place Prize for dance with their work DUET- winning the audience vote 7 nights out of 10, followed by the piece being part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase.


This is what the press said:


“Duet is a unique piece of honest, funny and inspiring work that is both personal and performative. The physicalisation and verbalisation of the pair’s emotional struggle is deft and witty. “
Total Theatre


“Their charm comes from the women’s personalities, their autobiographical honesty and dry sense of humour.”
The Times


“A slickly crafted, comic double act based on choreographers Hanna Gillgren and Heidi Rustgaard going into couples therapy, which punctures silliness with knife-in-the-stomach reality.”
The Evening Standard


“A funny piece about dance and dancers, winningly performed.”
The Telegraph


“A comedy dance duo with exceptional chemistry and striking performance techniques.” The Stage


“Funny, sometimes brutal and always entertaining. “
The Guardian


Since The Place Prize Hanna and Heidi have expanded DUET into a full evening production together with composer Sylvia Hallett, dramaturg Mark Whitelaw and lighting designer Andy Hammond. The work premiered at The Place in November and recently performed at Colchester Arts Centre, UK. Further performances of DUET are coming up in the UK, Norway and Sweden in 2014. See h2dance calendar for more information.


2014 will see h2dance develop their work SAY SOMETHING for children in collaboration with Eleanor Palmer Primary School and SHIFT; The Place youth dance company, London and Attic in Drammen, Norway. In the spring Hanna and Heidi will start researching a new quartet in partnerships with The Place, Dance East,Trestle Teatre, Pavilion Dance, UK and DansiT Norway.
