UPCOMING RESIDENCY: 11th – 12th of March 2017 with Sam Gilroy

Sam Gilroy will be researching a work in the making, ‘If Wishes Were Horses,

Beggars Would Ride’. Exploring episodic memories and how to perform them,
the workshop will focus on the dancers creating the imagery from the episodic
memories using a polythene sheet as a central prop; creating a tent; cradling a
baby; wearing a veil. This workshop seeks to explore how a company of dancers
can use contact work and contemporary techniques to bring personal
narratives to life and transition seamlessly from one episode to the next.
Both days will begin with a 1 hour contemporary class to warm-up and learn
repertoire movement, followed by choreographic tasks and explorations. This
workshop is open to trained dancers and undergraduates in their final year of

FREE: this residency is a part of trip’s choreographic exchange, supporting
choreographers and professional dancers to develop work together.

The residency will be held at Middlesex University, Hendon in the Ritterman Dance
Studio. 10am-4pm.

Dance tour for Early Years Audiences

We are busy in rehearsal for our up-coming tour of dance and music performance work:
'Light Steps' for young audiences 2 to 5+ years and their families.
'Found' for young audiences  4 to 7+ years and their families.
Both performance works have been co-created with young people. Light Steps was inspired by the Turner Contemporary, Margate Summer of Colour exhibit of work by Spencer Finch in 2014. We worked with the Reception classes of a local primary school to research and develop what has now become the performance work 'Light Steps'.

'Found' developed from a larger project working with three Museums and three schools in 2016. This larger project was called the ILA project we again worked with the young people to co-create the story and elements of the final performance work 'Found'. You can see the steps of the making of Found at

We are now in rehearsal getting the artistic team ready for an exciting tour later this year.
