Common Dance

A dance film of Rosemary Lee’s Common Dance, created for Greenwich’s historic Borough Hall in 2009, performed by an intergenerational cast of 50 professional and non-professional dancers and a choir of 70 young people from Finchley Children’s Music Group singing Terry Mann’s choral work, will be free to view on YouTube until 22 July 2020

Lee said, “it feels timely to share this work right now. As the children sing of our mortality, aliveness and our connection to nature, the choreography explores commonality, the power of gathering, cooperation, attentiveness and belonging.”

The film was created by Roswitha Chesher and Rosemary Lee and shot over several performances.
