Little Big Dance
In November 2019, our co-artistic director, George Fellows, was announced as a Little Big Dance supported artist.
Lead by regional partners South East Dance, Yorkshire Dance, Dance East and Take Art, Little Big Dance is a new national initiative setting out to pioneer a blueprint for creating dance with and for under five year olds. Stemming from the belief that very young children are an undervalued and overlooked audience for the arts in general but particularly for dance, Little Big Dance will support dance artists to develop the specialist skills and experience needed to work with this group.
In March 2020, George was chosen to be one of two artists to continue to be supported in the development of their work for a national tour.
A work that challenges the boundaries of children’s theatre, the piece draws attention to issues surrounding mental health and the childhood experience. At times quiet and tentative and at other times an explosion of pure joy, this unique work acknowledges and validates the depth and intensity of the emotional landscape of young children and their carers.
