Choreography by Vanessa Grasse
Newcastle, June-August 2018
Supported by Yorkshire Dance and Dance City as part of the Great Exhibition of the North
MESH invites audiences and passers-by to join in the making of a public ritual of togetherness. In response to our divisive global political climate, MESH explores how a participatory choreography for a large group can bring people together.
The cast of ten professional dancers and local residents weave through the city’s streets and respond to public spaces, creating co-operative, self-organising formations that invite gentle connections and interactions.
The video is a documentation of audience and passers-by's reactions and interaction with the work in Newcastle at The Great Exhibition of The North.
