We are Dansformation, a company committed to increasing dance engagement worldwide. We specialise in interactive art performance inclusively with whole communities, arts, music with visual and digital art. Dance is just the beginning of the conversation.
Everything moves, physics informs us of that fact. What happens when we move is we communicate our energy through our movement patterns and choices.Dansformation has enjoyed research into space with Kielder Observatory and motion capture with Edinburgh University. Whats happening in the world informs our practise, as does the participants in the work they create and the ideas they have are included in every element of the finished product. Right now in 2018 our work with young people is at the forefront of what we do and all-sorts of young people. We engage students in dance who need to be educated out of school, we work with many different young people who are in SEN education, supporting their creativity and ownership of creating youth authored performance work. We work in schools, educating children and young people with traditional Northumbrian dance and music, learning our cultural heritage, whilst producing projects to support older people in care situations through music and dance with children and young people. Our youth company gets fantastic reviews and creates lots of inspiring and original dance work in theatres and outdoors, performing in many festivals and events each year.
“The children and young people inspire me each day and every minute I work with them, they have so much creative energy and vibrant passion for moving boundaries and creating high quality work any professional would be proud of” Emma Dunn-Director Dansformation.
