Breeze Project 2012

Shhhh, it's a Secret !

Breeze  Project  June 2012

In May and June Ascendance Rep worked with an exciting collective of local young dancers to create a brand new dance piece from scratch especially for Breeze International Youth Festival 2012.

On Saturday June 9, Ascendance Rep Contemporary Dance Company, accompanied by local singer and songwriter Lisa Marie Glover, took to the streets with Shhh, it’s a Secret! This exciting new project was created during the Breeze Festival and culminated in a series of pop-up performances across the city centre, finishing at The Carriageworks as part of Breeze International Youth Festival Live!

The new performance piece was created by a fantastic team of young devisers working with choreographer Janice Keith. Ascendance Rep Youth Collective took inspiration from ‘snapshot moments’ of the everyday people they observed on the busy streets of Leeds. It focuses on interactions between different characters and imagined glimpses into how these encounters affect the rest of their day.

The Collective is made up of local young dancers with a passion for devising work.  Choreographer Janice Keith says:  “the members of the Collective have worked together brilliantly and have devised the movements themselves – they have been really creative and imaginative; it has been an intense process over half term and the young people have worked amazingly hard to put this together. The best thing about this project is that we have been able to let them contribute to every aspect of the piece.”

“It has been great to work with such an enthusiastic team. This type of project gives young people who are interested in dance a valuable insight into how professional companies like ours work” Production Manager Carolyn Eden said.“
