We love dance, so we are hosting a social event to show it. We will kick off by teaching a special one-off social dance workshop to get you moving. This will be followed by live music from The Vagaband as well as dj’s spinning all sorts of dancing tunes to get your feet shuffling. Dance films and cabaret performances will be presented throughout the night. So put on your dancing shoes, dust off your favourite moves and come and show your love of dance!
This is a fundraising event for GlassHouse, all proceeds will be invested in the company allowing us to continue making exciting and engaging performances as well as offering opportunities for everyone to experience dance.

A new dance-theatre performance for the street by GlassHouse

Set in various locations across the city, three duets unfold to tell the story of a relationship seen at different points in time. The audience is taken on a journey that reflects the couples own, at points comic and laugh-out-loud at others poignant and touching. Beginning with them falling in love for the first time, the question is where will you and they end up next?

All performances begin at The Book Hive, London Street, lasting for approximately 1 hour.

This performance is the first stage of development for GlassHouse.

These are FREE performances as part of Norfolk & Norwich Festival

Inspiration: Wildwood

My final post on inspiration behind ‘Space to Move’. I love this book. At the heart of it Roger Deakin writes beautifully on how important trees are to our culture and our lives. The wood is where we go to ‘grow, learn and change’.

Roger Deakin: Wildwood

“The Chinese count wood as the fifth element and Jung considered trees an archetype. Nothing can compete with these larger-than-life organisms for signalling the changes in the natural world. They are our barometers of the weather and the changing of the seasons. We tell the time of year by them. Trees have the capacity to rise to the heavens and connect us to the sky, to endure, to renew, to bear fruit and to burn and keep us warm through winter.”

Inspiration: Nature Cure

In an attempt to give you a taste of ‘Space to Move’ I am posting some of the writing and images that inspired the workshop. First up is a quote by Richard Mabey from Nature Cure.

“We constantly refer back to the natural world to discover who we are. Nature is the most potent source of metaphors to describe and explain our behaviour and feelings. It is the root and the branch of much of our language. We sing like birds, blossom like flowers, stand like oaks, eat like gluttons, breed like rabbits and generally behave like animals.”
