DeNada Dance Theatre's AD and choreographer, Carlos Pons Guerra, has been announced as Juncture Fellow for Yorkshire Dance's two-week festival, Juncture, curated by Wendy Houston, and which will take place in Leeds, March 2014.
Juncture is an initiative, developed by Yorkshire Dance in collaboration with choreographer Charlotte Vincent, to bring new work, professional development, critical debate and innovative performance practice to Yorkshire.
The programme aims to stimulate the practice and thinking of established practitioners and emerging artists across Yorkshire, develop new audiences for ground-breaking contemporary dance in Yorkshire and support the artistic and curatorial practice of the lead artist and collaborators involved.

During his fellowship, Carlos will continue his research on cinematic approaches to narrative dance work, developing solo work for a new piece under the working title of Aurorax 0.5 (loosely based on Petipa's Sleeping Beauty, Pedro Almodóvar's Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and inspired by Spanish women's addiction to sleeping pills). Juncture will offer Carlos the opportunity to share his work and engage in dialogue with all the participating artists as well as the festival's curator, Wendy Houston.
