At the end of a year of touring the Dancing in Caves project, a reflection on the making/touring/adapting process by Director Katie Green.
Last week (11th – 13th January) we had an emotional roller-coaster of a few days working at Kents Cavern in Torquay, developing ideas for a new dance promenade piece for caves and underground spaces called 'Beneath Our Feet'.
Our second week of research for the Dancing in Caves project at Pavilion Dance South West culminated in a sharing of some of our early ideas for new work Beneath Our Feet in the PDSW theatre, lit by torches. Our audience were really generous in feeding back about their experience of the work, and I wanted to jot down some of the things I learnt from their responses, as well as other key ideas from the second week.
For 2 weeks in August and September 2016 we are in residence with Pavilion Dance South West exploring initial movement ideas for our new work 'Beneath Our Feet', designed for promenade performance in caves and underground spaces.
