Louise Ahl is starting an MA Choreographic Practice at the NICE Institute (the Non- Institute for Choreographic Education). This is a performance project in the shape and in the name of a Masters course, based in a fictional institute. As part of preparing to be a Master student she has been training to run a marathon.

NICE Opening Ceremony is a durational performance in which Louise will run her first ever marathon – inside The Arches. When the marathon is finished there will be a short choreographic ceremony to illuminate the event.

Developed with the support of The Work Room.
