Citrus Arts have been commissioned by Dance Blast to create an integrated, immersive dance theatre show in the grounds of their base in Abergavenny.
This is an ambitious project which brings together performers from MCDC, MYDC and Atomic for the first time.
The concept behind the project is that of Abergavenny declaring itself an independent state in 1404. If this was to happen today, what kind of society would we choose and what conflicts might arise.
This is a long running project which started in August 2018, with performances planned for
"Dance Blast is the dance development organisation for Monmouthshire. They deliver a wide range of activities for adults and children. They also run a Youth Dance Development programme, MYDC, supporting and enabling young people to excel and shine, as well as an ever developing disability dance scheme."
"For the second year running, Monmouthshire Connected Dance Company (MCDC) is involved in the Arts Council funded 'Ignite' project alongside Monmouthshire Youth Dance Company.
Ignite project participants select professional choreographers to create new dance works, leading the whole process from shortlisting and auditioning candidates to making the final decision on which choreographers to commission. The project culminates in exciting public performance. For Ignite 18/19, the dancers have chosen to work with Citrus Arts to create a site specific piece of dance theatre, with circus elements, to be performed at our own Dance Centre at Easter 2019."
