Love to both dance and act? Maybe you don't need to choose one over the other after all. But what exactly is the connection between dance and theatre in contemporary times? From the heydays of DV8 Physical Theatre, Pina Bausch, Ultima Vez and currently the likes of Punchdrunk or Gecko Theatre, dance and theatre are forever inextricable both as art forms as well as physical entities.
