8 musicians from Youthsayers took part in the Tunedin Festival at The Place. We worked with Artistry Youth Dance over a 4 month period to create a piece of new work with live music and contemporary dance. The participants had a new experience as the dancers had never worked with live musicians before and likewise the musicians had not worked with contemporary dancers. The rehearsal process was interesting and challenging and the final show (April 7th 2018) came together to stunning effect. Other companies involved included Raw Material Music and Media and Impact Youth Dance.We would like to thank Hakeem Onibudo at The Place for devising and producing the festival and all the staff at The Place. Also thanks to Kamara Gray the artistic director of Artistry Youth Dance. Gratitude also goes out to Arts Council England for supporting this project.
