Using a community cast of intergenerational dancers, and performed at Little Blakenham Woodland Gardens
in August 2017.
We worked with Composer Amy Mallett to intergrate music and dance together, for a truly immerse experience.
A creative collaboration between Karen Louise Dance and Anna Rowe Dance.
From our duet formed a new branch of The Seedling. We were lucky enough to secure a beautiful woodland garden in Suffolk as a scenic setting and created and developed the work into a promenade performance for families.
The performers take the audience on a journey through the woods, exploring the wonders of nature close up. Watching and helping the seedling after it's departure from it's mother plant, into an unknown land where human impact takes it's toll.
This project was funded by The Arts Council England in 2019 and a developed version was devised.
We grew the project, bringing on board 25 intergenerational community dancers and 2 professional dancers. We also delivered the project within two primary schools in Suffolk, working with a Year 4 class to create their own version of The Seedling Dance Story.
We expanded to two venues; Little Blakenham Woodland Gardens in Ipswich and Suffolk Wildlife Trust site Foxburrow Farm in Woodbridge.
