Current Production

‘Dwam’

 

This contemporary dance piece is inspired by the animal and natural world that can be found in the urban context. ‘Dwam’ will take you on a journey as you meet different characters inhabiting a quiet city park. Costumes and objects are used to create a connection between the ordinary, everyday world and the more abstract world of dance. This choreography will appeal especially to a young audience.

 

The piece has already been performed at the Big Dance Bus in Kingston and will be performed at the Big Dance Bus in other locations. It also will be performed at the Brady Arts Centre  on 24 and 25 June 2016 and Hackney Children Theatre festivals on 9 and 31 July 2016.

Past Productions:

'Raining Cats and Dogs'
The Choreography is inspired by London's graffiti.
This was featured at the SPINE Festival 2016.

'Pace'
The Choreography is inspired by the art exhibition 'Momentum' showed at the Barbican - Curve Gallery.
The choreography devised by Ideachor's members, recreates through the body and its relationship with space some of the patterns and most importantly the mood and environment, originally created by the twelve electronic pendulums of the exhibition.”
