Contemporary Dance and Circus Arts Collaborations (2014 – present)

Students from London Contemporary Dance School and the National Centre for Circus Arts came together for a week in December 2014 to create devised pieces for a Christmas cabaret performance.

Students were split into five groups of mixed disciplines; contemporary dancers working with aerialists, jugglers or hand balance artists. The project was supported by a staff member from each school and is an extension of previous exchanges between LCDS and the National Centre.

Students shared their work through an informal performance attended by staff and students from the two schools. The work was also disseminated via a film showing at the 2015 Staff Conference.
