Made By YOU commission 2016 - at the Discovery Museum

Following a long gap since our last Made By YOU project with young choreographer Alexa Mason in 2011 (see what Alexa's up to now), we're thrilled to announce we are offering another opportunity for a talented young choreographer to create work that will be presented alongside a forthcoming performance of The Imagination Museum.

Katie Green and Alexa Mason working at Deda in 2011
Katie will be mentoring young choreographer Megan Otty, currently studying at Dance City in Newcastle (see the work Megan Otty produced as part of  Youth Dance England's Young Creatives 2015 here) to create her own response to the artefacts on display at the Discovery Museum.

Her response will then be integrated within Katie's professional work The Imagination Museum for schools performances at the museum on the 20th May and public performances on the 21st May. This collaboration is part of Katie's research into new ways to work with dance into museums and to involve young people as part of that work.

More updates to follow! The Dancing in Museums project is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
