During 2012 to 2014 we collaborated with seven French and English partners to launch an exciting programme of exchanges, training and performances and touring opportunities.
The two year European project DanSCe Dialogues 2 cross-Channel programme culminated in July 2014 having offered unique experiences and opportunities for dance artists, choreographers and companies in Southern England and Normandy and Brittany in France.
Highlights of the DD2 project include:
- Bringing together English and French touring professionals, promoters and artists from the UK and Normandy.
- Increasing the awareness of the practices and working approach of each participant, developing cross-Channel exchanges and support the start of future linked projects.
- An exchange of masterclasses giving UK-based artists the opportunity to learn from international choreographers and teachers; and to disseminate their learning in France.
- Residencies allowing international artists to make and premiere their work in the UK and for UK-based artists to develop work in France.
