These pages are our response to this difficult time, and are full of tips that many other amazing artists have shared with us here: Thank you to you all, and we hope we can spread more love and community at this difficult time!

At the beginning of lockdown, Arts Council England and BBC funded 25 organisations and artists to produce creative responses to the pandemic. You can see all of the brilliant work produced HERE

Inspired with conversations had in with artists in the midst of the current situation, 30 Seconds of Freedom is a collective dance short bringing together dancers from around the world in an expression of movement, a step outside of reality and a breath in a time of social distancing.

This week we are sharing an excerpt of The Rodin Project.

‘This excerpt is from a simple, handheld recording made to document any changes to the choreography and to give notes to the dancers. The film was not created to be viewed publicly, so has little consideration of film/camera aesthetic – but does show the great performances of the dancers – and if you listen closely you can hear me at times making notes to myself during the recording! This is one of the ways I share feedback with the dancers and creative team when on tour and in the studio.”
