The Art of Making Dance

  • 13 May 2016 6:30-8:30pm

A celebratory dance programme from MDI inspired by Akram Khan’s choreography for the 2016 Big Dance Pledge. The piece explores the body and its place in the digital world we live in, the rituals and spirituality we may encounter and our connections to other human beings. Through the evening we will see this dance reinvented in different ways by dancers of all ages and backgrounds inspired by its themes, making the ordinary beautiful. 18:30—19:00 Watch group performances that will experiment with Akram Khan's original choreography and transform it into a new dance work that represents their group style. 19:00—19:30 Come and learn this inspirational movement in The Well of the Anglican Cathedral. Experiment with us - move, have some fun, learn and connect! 19:30—20:00 Dance artists take to the spaces of the Anglican Cathedral to experiment with The Art of Making Dance and consider the spiritual, political and digital influences that shape our lives.
