          Dance United – the award-winning charity that believes in the power of dance to transform lives – presented on 20 and 22 October 2012 the London premiere of A Holding Space – an inspiring programme of work that brought together professional and non-professional dancers from across the UK and Ethiopia, at The Place, one of London’s most prestigious dance venues. Roost, the fourth piece in the performance, was originally commissioned by London-based Matrix Chambers in remembrance of World Refugee Day on 20 June 2012. Kwesi Johnson’s innovative choreography tells the story of the modern refugee and is based on the experiences of refugees he encountered while working as a dance artist in Ugandan camps in the summers of 2010 and 2011. The dancers of this piece are members of Dance United's London Performance Company. A Holding Space at The Place was produced by Rob Lynden. This film was produced and directed by Caswell Coggins and Andrew Coggins.

                    June 20, 2012 is World Refugee Day. Refugees are defined under international law as being outside their home country and having a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. Since 1980, 1.8 million refugees have been invited to live in the United States - typically between 40,000 to 75,000 each year. From 2008-10, the U.S. Department of State recorded the resettlement of over 18,000 adolescent refugee girls. Once resettled, girls face overwhelming responsibilities and social isolation compared with boys. Poverty, language, and their responsibilities at home make it extremely difficult to learn English, succeed in school, and help their families navigate life in the U.S. GirlForward is a non-profit organization in Chicago dedicated to empowering adolescent refugee girls to reach their full potential. Here are the stories of Khina, Saja, Sarah, and Domi - four girls who have participated in GirlForward's programs. To learn more, visit girlforward.org or Facebook.com/GirlForward
