We've started our research for Touch - 15 May 2019

We've truly kicked off our creation process of 'Touch', a gentle show for 0-3 year olds. Last week we had a wonderful timing dancing with babies and toddlers from Canterbury Day Nursery while in residence at The Gulbenkian.

Alongside making 'Touch' for 0-3 year olds, we are investigating dancing the show in a hospital environment with Great Ormond Street Hospital For Children Nhs Trust and Unlimited. We had our first visit at the beginning of May. These photos share a little part of our beautiful dance with Zharyia.

We've got funding to make 'Touch'! - 20 April 2019

Hip hip hurray! We've been awarded funding from Arts Council England to create and tour 'Touch' for ages 0-3. Watch-out more more updates coming soon.

Inspired by the importance of touch in the cognitive and physical development of young children, ‘Touch’ is an improvised and interactive dance-show performed by four dancers and a DJ. Commissioned by The Place, Pavilion Dance South West and supported by The Egg and Gulbenkian, University of Kent.

Alongside creating this version, we'll also be researching the possibility of adapting a version for teenagers with South East Dance as part of their City Dances festival, and working with Unlimited and Great Ormond Street Hospital and Children's Charity
