Got something to say?
It’s Your Move! is our latest intergenerational project, working with communities across the UK.
No experience necessary and we do all the dancing! It’s Your Move invites 10 people from each community, at 10 different stages of life, to each create a short dance on 2 professional performers about absolutely anything.
Previous participants have gone nutty for Nando’s, talked about Tinder, got caught in a Time Warp, dissected the lifecycle of a dragonfly, uncovered the wonder of unicorns and reflected on a whole host of personal life experiences. As you can see, literally anything can be the starting point for creating a dance!
Once created, all 10 dances are woven together to create one performance celebrating the rich tapestry of each community. They are then performed locally, in a celebration of ‘now’ and ‘us’.
We’ve successfully delivered this unique project in partnership with York Theatre Royal in York; Birmingham Dance Hub and Nechells POD in Birmingham and The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury.
We’re currently working with the wonderful folks at artsdepot to deliver the project in Barnet and we’re looking for local people to get involved! To find out more or to express an interest, head over to our Opportunities page.
We’re also looking for partner organisations to help us create future versions of the project. Check out our project film below and contact us if you’d like to find out more.
