About Bodies On The Beach
Bodies on the Beach was one of fourteen dance works specially commissioned for The Big Dance Weekend 2014 – a series of exceptional dance performances and events in unexpected places across England.
The Yorkshire Commission took place on the beach at Bridlington on Saturday 12 July 2014, and involved a community cast from across Yorkshire.
Bodies on the Beach was choreographed by Susanne Thomas and supported by a team of artists comprising Sam Lawrence, Julius Ebreo and Kim Oakley who worked with the cast to create the piece over six weeks.
The cast and artists were supported by Yorkshire Dance who set up and co-ordinated the project, and by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and The Spa Bridlington.
Funding for this project was provided through Foundation for Community Dance, Arts Council England and Hull & East Riding Charitable Trust.
