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 www.ilaproject.com

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