Connections – a digital dance project produced by Grand Junction and Shubbak Festival.
Connections was an exciting online dance project that was delivered from July – October 2020, where four young artists age 12-25 worked with professional dancer and choreographer, Ben Fury, based in Belgium. Ben has toured the world performing and delivering community workshops and programmes. Ben lead the group through a series of accessible dance exercises and the group created a new piece of work that was made into a film, inspired by personal experiences, lockdown and their local area.
Many thanks to our funders for making this project possible – The Arts Council England.
