The Performance

TRACES of WAR: an original dance performance & installation  created by a cast of veterans, and young people

Candoco Associate Artists and choreographers Jemima Hoadley and Welly O’Brien worked with the cast members of the Charlie F Project, Cando2 Youth Dance, Kings College London students, pupils from Harris Girls Academy and Clapton Girls Academy to produce an original piece of choreography looking at the impact of war on the individual and the collective.

The disabled and non-disabled participants aged 12 to 45, from countries spanning India, Colombia and Cyprus, have little or no dance experience. The cast created material over a 6-day workshop period culminating in an original site-specific dance performance set to the sound score of Traces of War artist, Jannane Al-Ani's Shadow Sites II.

"I don't think any combination of words will ever manage to be representative of the immense privilege it was to participate in an environment that was charged with this vivaciousness for living, pushing your boundaries and never ceasing to create."
