LDIF 10 Years in the Making

LDIF 10 Years In The Making dances beyond the boundaries of a single nation, charting the journey of Let’s Dance International Frontiers (LDIF). This transnational dance festival launches each year in Leicester, UK, on 29 April, International Dance Day.

Looking back to the festival’s origins, this special publication documents some of the key moments, performances, artists and collaborations from the festival’s ten-year history. Through stunning images of dance artists who have featured in festivals from the last 10 years, poetry by Thomas Prestø, context setting by Gladys M Francis, and personal recollections by Pawlet Brookes.  The legacy of LDIF is laid bare in celebration of this milestone.
