Yorkshire Dance to contribute new pieces of work as part of Pavilion Dance South West Showcase: CHILDREN & THEIR GROWN-UPSThu 9 September 2021
We are delighted to announce that as part of Pavilion Dance South West’s Showcase: CHILDREN & THEIR GROWN-UPS, two new pieces of work as well as a workshop aimed at professional dance artists will take place in our building on Saturday 2nd of October 2021, as well as via live-stream.
“Children and young people have been particularly badly hit by the fallout of Covid. This Showcase will open a window onto new dance work for children that is available for touring. It gives artists, companies, producers and programmers a chance to hear about the co-creation of work with children and how it’s being adapted for different touring formats.“
– Pavilion Dance South West
For this showcase, we will be sharing Improplay by Katy Hewison and The Bull and the Moon by Carlos Pons Guerra.
A family friendly performance.
Recommended ages 2+
Length: 30 minutes
I Imagine… You Imagine…. We Imagine…
Improplay Performance brings together adult artists and young children, to create a magical world through dance, improvisation and play. We search for trust and freedom and look for limitless potential in our imagination so that together we can dream and fly in the creative space.
Let our dreams begin…
The Bull and the Moon
A dance theatre production for families
Recommended age: 3 +
Length: 30 minutes
Lolo is a little Spanish bull that has a little secret. He doesn’t feel like he fits in with the other bulls in the farm. He doesn’t like the big loud bull fights, and he really doesn’t enjoy cowboy rodeos either. Dragging heavy carts of hay, or being the leader of his herd- Lolo doesn’t enjoy any of that!
Instead, every night, he secretly learns how to dance with the shimmering Moon, and dreams of becoming Lola, a famous flamenco dancing cow.
Will you come dance with Lolo and help make their dreams come true?
The Bull and the Moon is brand-new family friendly production that celebrates anyone who dances to their own tune. A fun, fiery and magical outdoor dance performance that blends contemporary dance, flamenco and theatre, this is a heart-warming story about the importance of being oneself, family and LGBTQ+ inclusivity.
Katy Hewison will also be leading a workshop for professional dance artists (performers and/or facilitators, especially for those with a particular interest in movement improvisation) and children aged 4 -6. This workshop will share an insight into Improplay’s Creative Process. Using movement concepts and creation methods we will move, imagine and explore improvisation together.
Ticket’s for the performances and workshop happening in our building can be booked via our website while ticket’s for the live-stream can be booked directly from Pavilion Dance South West.
