“Once in a lifetime” opportunity for North East dancers

Peter Lathan

North East dancers are being offered the opportunity to work with San Francisco’s deaf dance artist Antoine Hunter at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art this October.

Working with Newcastle-based Moving Art Management, guest producers Nicole Vivien Watson and Paul Miller are are looking for twenty volunteer dance participants to join him in a week of creative dance activities.

The project, Where Our Roots Are Planted, runs from 9 to 13 October (daytime) and the volunteers will be paid £15 a day towards travel and refreshment costs.

This is, the producers say, a very inclusive project—“you don’t need lots of dance experience, just lots of enthusiasm! We are looking for people who are 16+, deaf and hearing, dancers and non-dancers.”

The deadline is Friday 5 September. For full details on how to apply, go to the MMA web site news page.
