On the last Saturday of March Coventry City Centre hosted a live screening of HOME, Mark reflects on our experience of creating Home, a vertical dance performance about the incredible city we live in, Coventry.
We have never been more together and yet so alone. I have no doubt that at the time of writing this statement there are many of you who might share this same sentiment.
I have a vested interest in physical contact, it’s how I create work and how I have made my living. But contact is far more important than just ‘making performance work’.
If you are reading this, believe me when I say there is always this beauty of ‘yet’ in life, in education, in yourself. Take your time, things will flow when you learn to love yourself and the world.
Throughout my week here on work experience with Highly Sprung, I have met incredible performers each sharing their same passion within performance through elements of dance and physical theatre.
My first show for Highly Sprung was 10 years ago. It was called “Chalk Door”, and performed at the Belgrade Theatre as was part of the first ever Physical Fellowship.
This week I have been working with 4 classes of yr 3 + 4 children looking at climate change and pollution in a school in Staffordshire.
