The project is an ongoing exploration into the process of sharing memories, anecdotes and dance moves as a means of bringing communities together and engendering the possibilities for richer immersive performance experiences.
As an integral part of this participatory art project, I adopt the role of the ‘Dance Collector’: I will try to learn your moves and will teach you mine. I cannot dance, but you can watch me try.
I attempt to dance. I remember all the moves I have collected. I imagine the moves of the people present. I dedicate a dance move to you.
The work shown here has evolved through residencies that have taken place at various community settings including: Crewe Community Centre, Hunt & Darton’s Café (Manchester & Derelict Preston), Preston Market and The Birley Studios in Preston.
