Residency 4 – 8 December
Colin Poole

This residency is led by choreographer Colin Poole in collaboration with dance artist Charlie Morrissey. Together we are exploring ideas around identity and trauma. This research comes at a time of political uncertainty, Brexit, Trump, the refugee crisis and fears with regard to, the 'Other'. Situated within this context we will explore how dance making sits within these concerns. We will investigate the nature of our responsibilities as artists and whether art has something unique to contribute to the wider conversation.
