From March - May 2019, Made By Katie Green will (subject to funding) be working with the wonderful folk at Delight to create a promenade piece for 3 dancers for Guildford library, aimed at year 2/3 children (aged 7/8).
This would be the pilot phase of a project that we hope will visit more libraries and schools in the future.
After a period of rehearsal, the professional performance would happen at the beginning of a school half term as an 'inspiration day' for our first partner school, and then the children will work on their own response to the performance and perform this at the library at the end of the half term.
Dates for the pilot project would be:
2nd March - invitation only R&D and recruitment workshop
16th March - 2nd day of R&D (just for 2 out of 3 dancers)
8th - 12th April - rehearsals
15th - 18th April - rehearsals
25th April - final rehearsal day
26th April - performance for the children
Then with 1 dancer we would hold follow-up workshops with the children on the:
and be with the children when they perform their own work at the library on the 22nd May.
