Chance to dance with resident artists

Dancers of all ages and abilities have the chance to take part in movement workshops and sharing with dance/performance company H2DANCE in Peterborough.

Choreographer Hanna Gillgren and Heidi Rustgaard are organizing movement workshops at Metal, the city-based arts group, looking at meetings between different communities and cultures.

H2DANCE will work with participants to develop a series of choreographic instructions that they will then respond to live during the performance using headphones.

The instructions will take them though a movement sequence, creating physical sculptures such as lines, tunnels and towers. Participants will step in and out of the sculptures allowing the shapes to constantly grow or shrink each time a person slots into or remove themselves, adjusting its shape and adding new perspectives.

It all takes place at Metal headquarters, Chauffeurs Cottage, 1 St Peters Road, behind Peterborough town hall.
