The following day on 2 June, Scottish Dance Theatre – a founding member of RepNet (a European network of dance companies who promote innovation) – presents an enchanting family performance for ages 3+. Innocence creates a magical theatrical journey, designed to engage young children with the medium of dance through movement, live music and animal noises. This event resonates particularly with Saffron Hall’s message of inclusivity within their community, bringing arts and culture to audiences of all ages.
The National Youth Dance Company – the UK’s hugely inclusive flagship youth dance company – presents MADHEAD on 13 July 2019, a piece specially-commissioned for the troupe that fuses contemporary dance, physical theatre and hip-hop. Created by its acclaimed Guest Artistic Director, Botis Seva, the work combines his unique choreographic style with the natural energy of these talented young dancers.
Angela Dixon, Chief Executive of Saffron Hall, said:
“Establishing a home for dance at Saffron Hall is incredibly important to us, as it’s a hugely integral part of UK culture, which is something we constantly aim to offer our community to the highest standard, and I’m incredibly proud of the calibre of performers that the Hall attracts. The inclusion of dance in our varied programme ensures that Saffron Hall continues to act as the artistic hub of East England, creating an exceptional space to enrich the community and inspire the next generation of artists.”
