Candoco & the Soldiers Arts Academy present an original dance performance created by a cast of veterans and young people followed by a panel discussion with Q&A 

About the Performance

Remember is a unique dance to commemorate the First World War choreographed by the award winning dance company Candoco and performed by veterans from recent conflicts from the Soldiers’ Arts Academy cic, War Studies students , young people and members of Candoco’s youth group, Cando2.  The dance has been created to explore experiences, stories and objects from the First World War through the experiences of veterans from more recent conflicts and non military members of the community.

The performance is aprox. 25 mins and will be followed by an opportunity to hear from the perfomers and artists involved in making the work.  The discussion will cover how objects are used to remember, the study of war and the experience war and the role of the arts in transition from military into civilian life.
