At the end of 2020, after a miserable 9 months of lockdown and social distancing, our amazing Phoenix Theatre Company students were invited to participate in two mental health dance workshops, based around the theme of Identity.
Footage from our students’ devised dance piece is used in the opening of the professional dance show, IDENTITY.
Our good friend Christopher Tendai, from the original UK Hamilton cast, now directs the fantastic CTC Dance Company which produced this innovative dance performance. Identity is showing online until February 20th 2021 https://www.ctcdancecompany.com/identity/
“This inventive and thoughtful dance piece explores what we see if we take our ‘masks’ off and allows ourselves to be us and not what society expects. Throughout the hour, the audience is taken on a journey of discovery and what it means to have the strength to change your perspective of yourself and to stop worrying about what expectations society has place on you.”
