This year Dance East Launched their new festival HOST dedicated to highlighting dancers and connecting them to the sector. When I was approached to create a new work for the festival I was incredibly excited and nervous. I had never worked with older dancers before and I had to challenge myself to develop my process. I broke out of my highly physical way of working but instead drew on the creativity and experience of the dancers i was working with to make something artistic and reflected them. The new work for Dance East’s company Encore East titled Were We Once Were.
