About To the Beat of a Different Drum
We invite you to an unexpected gathering and a meeting of worlds as youths and elders meet in the space that separates them and unites them…
There’s a microphone, a drum kit, an opportunity and an exchange of curious minds. Here they chime to the beat of a different drum, rub shoulders, take a risk and go all out to bring themselves and who they are to a unique happening on the dance floor.
This piece is the result of a collaboration between RJC Dance and Yorkshire Dance, under the artistic direction of TC Howard with musical collaboration by Joe Montague and creative support by Nillanthie Morton. RJC Dance Youth Provision Shahck Out Juniors and a group of elders have created this performance over eight sessions. ‘To the Beat of a Different Drum’ is in association with Leeds Dance Partnership.
Film by Rad Miller. Performance first shown as part of Family Encounters Festival February 2020.
