The event is called D.A.N.C.E. (Developing a new comedy experience). D.A.N.C.E is an event where comedians perform their sets and dancers improvise and react. Then in turn they swap with comedians attempting to dance and the dancers trying their hand at stand up.
The project received grants for the arts funding at the tail end of last year, and is as much focused on how artists from the two art forms can learn from each, as it is on audience development – bringing comedy audiences to see dance and vice versa. We are running a disability focused event on the 29th of October at the Attenborough Arts Centre in Leicester, and are looking for dancers who identify themselves as having a disaiblity?
The day usually runs from 10/11am right through to the performance in the evening (7pm), this is for rehearsal and workshops, as well as being able to be more familiar with your performance partner. The event itself lasts an hour and consisting of the two sections, the comedians performing their set and dancers improvising –this is usually ten minutes, and the swap section which in turn is more about making a collaborative performance than anything else and lasts 2-5mins.
We would be able to pay £150 plus travel/access costs,
