Glass House Dance are looking for 5 dancers for 1 week to play!
About the project and Glass House Dance
This is a one-week informal research period to test ideas for our new outdoor touring show, ‘red light, green light’, a quirky, joyful and offbeat meeting of people combining dance, street performance and clowning.
During the week we will be playing lots of games, getting to know each other, playing with improvisation scores and with joyful movement ideas alone and together.
This project will be led by Sarah Lewis and Laura Anderson, Co-Directors of Glass House Dance. They have made their mark on the outdoor arts scene, touring nationally for 8 years.
Their reputation is built on creating uplifting participatory and interactive performances and events for people of all ages. Passionate about blending dance and street theatre they are also recognised for working collaboratively with both professional and recreational dancers by hosting a positive, playful space for people to express their unique creativity to make essentially human, touching dance experiences with wide appeal.
They are currently associate artists of DanceEast and Norwich Arts Centre.
The week will convene at DanceEast, Ipswich:
October 10th – 14th 2022
10am – 5pm
