I was delighted to receive an Creative Scotland's Open Fund Award in 2021 to lead 

What Moves You? with fellow Dance Artists Julia McGhee, Niamh O'Loughlin and Skye Reynolds

and in partnership with The Brunton, Byre Theatre, Lyra and Lyth Arts Centre.

Thanks to this support and 40 Crowdfunder Supporters, we were able to

deliver online, outdoor and indoor workshops with more than 300 people across Scotland. 

We also each made a solo and performed outdoors for a total audience of 214 in Summer 2021. 

We look forward to sharing the short film of the outdoor performances - soon!

 

What Moves You? led to the following activities:

  • Performances by Niamh O'Loughlin of How to deserve a mountain in Dublin and Dundee in 2021

  • Performances by Julia McGhee of The Bog Blanket & Meet The Artists events for

      Thurso Women's Festival in April 2022 in partnership with Lyth Arts Centre

  • What Moves You Meet The Artists at The Brunton in Nov 2021 for an audience of 57. Live VJ, music and dance

  • Chance Dance Sessions for 30 x P5/6's of Cellardyke Youth Club in Nov 2021

  • My Friend Selkie interactive workshops for 156 Early Years and P1/2 children in Aberdeen Nurseries. Thanks to Creative Funding from Aberdeen City Council and a Magic Little Grant provided by Localgiving in partnership with the People's Postcode Trust, a grant giving organisation funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Dancebase R & D residency online 2020

Dawn that video is incredible.
The movement really drew me in, and it was particularly cool to see the dancers in their different surroundings, and when they came up and eyeballed the camera it felt simultaneously startling, intimate
and gave this feeling of connection and closeness.
Especially impressive to achieve something at that level during an r&d in lockdown - well done!
