Following on from out interview with the group of 5 girls we now bring you exclusive video footage from their first performance in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK. The company are; Josie Lucas, Tertia Underhill, Imogen Bostock, Kellie Wilson and Sarah Morgan.
The Making Statements company is the second outing for an experimental company designed to give newly graduated dancers the opportunity to build and develop their own company from scratch.
After a period of working with several established choreographers the dancers then took control of the company and the real work began. Creating, fund raising, education work and performing have become their day to day activity. For this performance the company took the approach of "if in doubt create good choreography and dance it really well" and the rest will take care of itself.
It is excellent stuff.
