COHORT 12

Cohort 12 was made up of three pieces. Firstly, Signs and Stories, which was a piece of choreography made in collaboration with Stopgap and welcomed three new dancers from the members of Blue Apple. The second piece was Traces which was made collaboratively by the dancers and the dance artists. Finally the dancers performed I’ll be Seeing you in Familiar Places, which was performed by the group at The Point after just three weeks of working together.

Our performance company Wessex Girls also performed a brand new piece called Echoes.
