What are Contemporary Ideas?

The Place recently celebrated its 50th anniversary as a leading dance institution in London. To celebrate this anniversary, Pictures for the People was assigned to create a series of animations that explore The Place’s history and complex ideas around dance. One of these animations asks, what are contemporary ideas?
