Ellen and Grace from TurnAround Dance Theatre have teamed up with Hannah Uttley to embark on a new dance, theatre and aerial project ‘RE:ignite’ funded by #LoveDanceScotland. In this project they will explore the themes that challenge the Elimination of Violence Against Women in the hope of developing a community project, performance or film raising awareness of gender-based violence. Throughout their project they are conducting workshops with women and survivors of gender-based violence exploring aerial and dance techniques focussing on listening to the stories of survivors and considering how to empower women. Their five-day residency in January will be a time for reflection and creative exploration, culminating in a sharing with invited audience members to gather feedback, evaluate and consider where this project could develop to. The #LoveDanceScotland recovery bursary is the ideal opportunity to slowly develop this idea with careful consideration of the subject matter. This project is supported by the #LoveDanceScotland Recovery Bursaries, presented in partnership by Citymoves Dance Agency , Dance Base, Dundee Rep Theatre and Tramway. Supported by the Scottish Government’s Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund.
