2019 Performances



Date: 28th April 2019 @ 18:00

Location: Pavilion Dance South West

‘This annual dance platform event is led by the BA (Hons) Dance programme at Arts University Bournemouth, in partnership with The Roche Court Educational Trust, with a focus on the exploration of visual art and performance.

First-year degree dance students will share their original choreographic material in a live performance setting, having responded to
exhibited sculpture at the New Art Centre, Roche Court. By using abstracted sculpture as a starting point for new performance, students will develop their understanding of visual language and how observations and discussion can be articulated through development work in the studio, culminating in a live performance. This platform is also open to local schools and colleges, working with the same creative live brief.’
