During our residency at Canal View Primary School the P6’s will explore the space in and around the school. Using the canal and surrounding area as inspiration and movement as the starting point, we will test how we might interact creatively with our environment, performing in places and spaces you might not expect. Taking risks, experimenting and playing with the rules.

Over the 10 weeks we will work collaboratively with the 2 P6 classes to explore themes of belonging, connection and autonomy. We will create a series of happenings throughout the school grounds and further afield exploring; Who’s space is this? Who belongs here? What are all the different possibilities?

Holding, lifting, falling, lying, balancing, climbing we will create movement scores as solos, duos and groups. In addition, using the voice in melodic as well as unusual ways, we will create a powerful choir of sound, harnessing the energy and power of the group.
