Transformation with Phoenix Dance Theatre
4th September 2018 - 26th October 2018
This project will be based around the central theme of Darkness and Light and is a collaboration between visual artists and Phoenix Dance Theatre.
This September young people from New College Huddersfield are working alongside visual artist Zoe Robertson who will lead a series of workshops aimed at creating drawings, sculptures and wearable objects in response to the theme. Phoenix Dance Theatre will then use the work created by the visual artists, as a stimulus to devise new choreographic dance pieces.
Phoenix will work alongside teachers and young people from across four different schools for a minimum of 6 weeks during September and October to co–create new dance pieces.
The schools involved in the project are Huddersfield New College, Ravenshall School and Meltham C of E Primary School.
A preview of Transformation will be performed at Our Biennale’s Big Draw and Play Day
