We are thrilled to announce that our Dancing in Caves project has been successful in receiving support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
However, this grant is conditional on us raising an additional £2,000 through Crowdfunding. So as of Monday 14th August 2017, we're asking for your help to raise that crucial £2,000 that will unlock our grant from the Arts Council and have a massive impact on our project, enabling us to provide access to what we’re doing where it might not otherwise be possible.
We only have 4 weeks to raise our total, so please donate what you can by visiting our Crowdfunding page here.
About the project
As part of our wider Dancing in Caves project, we are now developing a new promenade performance called Beneath Our Feet, which will be designed to take the audience on a journey around our partner caves and underground spaces, starting with Kents Cavern in Torquay in September 2017.
We spent 3 days on-site at Kents Cavern in January this year, working with an expert team of collaborators to research what Beneath Our Feet could look, feel and sound like. Take a look at our our website here to see beautiful images and footage from that research time.
We hope you’ll get a sense from the film of the potential to create something enchanting and mysterious, which integrates movement, live music, text and light to tell the story of the underground. If you like what you see, please consider donating to our Crowdfunding campaign, and also share our campaign with everyone you know so that we can reach as many people as possible!

They need to raise an additional £2,000 at this stage, through Crowdfunding, to help unlock nearly £50,000 worth of Arts Council funding - this means every £1 donated effectively equates to £25 of funding unlocked, which feels like great value for money!
