On Friday 23rd March 2018, Deep Roots Tall Trees dancetheatre shared their new work in progress: “Harmonium".
Inspired by the redundant All Saints Church, Aldwincle, Harmonium was a collection of stories, characters and dances created by the members of Deep Roots Tall Trees dancetheatre. It featured choreography made in response to the architecture and artefacts of the building, the story a late Victorian woman who finds solace in music, a group of happy campers who find solace in Pot Noodle and the words of Aldwincle born poet John Dryden.
The imaginative responses of the dancers were developed at The Arc, Rockingham Primary School and then transferred into the wonderful gallery spaces of The Rooftop Arts Centre, Corby.
The performance also featured a film of Norwich dancetheatre group No Big Idea who created dances in response to St Andrews Church, Wickhampton, a 12th century church in the marshlands of East Norfolk.
DRTT dancetheatre would like to thank: Gurvinder Evans, David Roxburgh, Dinah Kazakoff, Jenny Williams, Andy Eathorne and The Friendliest Photography Learning Club.
DRTT dancetheatre is an open access group for people who like to dance and express themselves through movement.
It is facilitated and directed by Neil Paris.
