Dancers ‘occupy’ theatre stages across Greater Manchester in a new film supporting the underground world of freestyle dance.
Forty dancers have joined forces during lockdown to create Untitled Film released on December 7 under group name I.M.PACT.
The film celebrates collaboration and community and sees the dancers ‘occupy’ eight stages at The Lowry, Manchester Opera House, Contact, The Portico Library, International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester Museum, HOME and the Royal Exchange.
The dancers hope it will highlight the need of the dancers and the theatres for audiences to return. It showcases different styles of dance including contemporary, jazz, tap, afro, B-Boy, krump and commercial.
