Event Details

a participatory choreography
by dance artist Vanessa Grasse

MESH invites audiences and passers-by to join in the making of a public ritual of togetherness in different spaces.

In response to our divisive global political climate, MESH explores how a participatory choreography for a large group can bring people together. It offers an experience of interdependence and collaboration through a shared physical experience.

A cast of 10 professional dancers and a group of local residents weave through streets, indoor and outdoor public spaces. Creating co-operative, self-organizing and sculptural formations responding to places, architecture and people.

MESH is part of a long term choreographic research project which explores the ecology of relational experiences.
