The Lime(light) Project has been a 12 – week artist residency project at Knowles Centre. During the project young people at Knowles Centre have had the opportunity to learn, rehearse and perform a contemporary dance with professional dance artists.
Working together as a group using contemporary dance as a language to communicate and learn more about one another, we identified a concept that has significance to the group members and this became the basis for the choreography. The concept informed and inspired the choreographic choices, ultimately creating a dance work that is significant, relevant to the participants – becoming their dance and their message.
