Kent Dance Network (KDN) are returning to the Beaney for a week long Residency. Three local dance artists will create dance work inspired by the Beaney collections and spaces in and around the building.
Here is a flavour of what you can expect to see from KDN’s Dance Artists during the Residency;
Laura King from Look Kloser
Laura will be bringing three quintessentially British characters who will dance round the museum; exploring how travel has changed what it is to be “british”.
Each characters’ journey will intertwine, connect and play together. She will create a vibrant, playful piece; full of character, charm and storytelling.
Harriet will be developing the fi nal stage of her work ‘Cling to the Scaffolding’ drawing upon The Beaney’s vast collections. This solo work explores chaotic order amongst the debris of life. Containing empty frustrations and full expectations.
Sarah is looking forward to challenging her creativity at The Beaney by experiencing, questioning and exploring the relationship between art and dance to create a piece of work for dancers in the community.
The Residency will culminate in a celebratory Day of Dance on Saturday 17 December with a sharing of work created during the week, along with some additional performances from other local dance artists, celebrating all things dance in Kent.
