Shadow Movement 2 - Thats a Wrap!


Well, we have had a magical, energetic, creative, thought-provoking, problem-solving and exhausting week working alongside eight fantastic young dancers. We spent five days at NonSuch Theatre in Nottingham, guiding the young people through a creative choreographic process. Collaborating with Matt Taylor, a local filmmaker, the group worked together to create a dance film. Monday - Thursday was spent generating material and meticulously story boarding! Friday was a manic day, filming in various locations across Nottingham. Thankfully, the weather gods were on our side!

We were so impressed by the way that the ground bonded and worked together. It was a pleasure to work with them and dance alongside them in the film. Watch this space - The Magic Jumper will be edited and ready to view within the next few weeks.

But for now...I shall leave you with this wonderful message from one of our participants. Sophie is on a year long exchange from Germany. We were very touched by her feedback! Enjoy!

I want to thank you again for such a fantastic week of dancing and for the opportunity to learn so much from you dancers!I don't know what could top this, so I am calling this the highlight of my exchange year. :)) Special thank you for the emotions that we experienced at the final video filming day. This was an amazing feeling and unforgettable! Just can say WOW! I think we have been a strong and very good team, hard working but with a lot of fun ! Cannot wait to see the final video!! Thank you!!!
