MOVING TOGETHER / ONLINE DANCE FLASHMOB

24/10/2020 16:00-17:00

Join us for this Online Dance Flashmob, having learned some of your favourite choreographies from Moving Together & …let’s move together!

About this Event

Moving Together is a creative research collaboration between anthropology researcher Dr Bronwyn Tarr and physical theatre company Justice in Motion. It explores loneliness and the power of movement & music to affect how distant or connected we feel.

Can synchronised music and movement help us connect with each other?

Dance to a specially created soundtrack inspired by the voices of people experiencing loneliness and accompanied by original music from Quentin Lachapele.

We’re hosting online tutorials from 5-10 October with our team of dancers who are demonstrating and teaching moves.

Dancers: Krystal Campbell, Junior Cunningham, Miles Kearley, Anja Meinhardt, Gemma Peramiquel, Daniel Seven

Join us all for this epic dance flashmob. Whether you learned the dance moves yourself, or in one of the tutorials, or just want to watch, this Online Dance Flashmob will send your heart and body soaring!

The event will take place using the Zoom platform and starts on Saturday 24 October at 16:00 (GMT) ending at 17:00 (GMT)
