Argyll and Bute based dance artist, David West, will be developing a part autobiographical dance theatre work around the theme of “Sanctuary.” He will be working with his long term collaborator, London based writer/filmmaker/visual effect artist, Josh Baker Mendoza. The residency will be a melting pot of dance theatre elements, that be utilising voice over, spoken word/drama text, characterisation. David also works round themes of mental health, and plans to address/research the effects of the journey to find both physical and mental sanctuary, should we find it, and the affect it has on our psyche. This one week residency will act as the ground work to future development to tackle different social issues in our society such as homelessness to name one amongst many.
