Client: Barrowland Ballet
In 2012, East London Dance commissioned Natasha Gilmore to choreograph a major new work featuring hundreds of older dancers for the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre.
Natasha had recently established her dance company, Barrowland Ballet, in Glasgow and was keen to develop a major older people’s project in the city. East London Dance worked as project consultants for Barrowland Ballet to re-produce Dancing Voices in Glasgow drawing on our delivery model and learning from what we were doing in London, and training up her team of producers to understand how to produce large-scale participatory performance projects.
“I have worked as a choreographer with many different dance organisations across the country, but none that match East London Dance’s ability to produce such inspirational work with communities. It has been great for my team to learn from their approach and strategies to deliver such ambitious work with non-professional dancers.”
