UK & International Events 2021
Beatrice Allegranti Company has received a new commission from Surrey Arts and Dance21 and is currently preparing for rolling out Moving Kinship Hubs across six Surrey boroughs. The company is working with Surrey NHS and Public Health to recruit families affected by rare-young onset dementia who live in Surrey. Contact the company here if you would like to participate.
Together with existing Arts Council England support, the Surrey Dance 21 commission will also allow Beatrice Allegranti to upscale the production I’ve Lost You Only To Discover That I Have Gone Missing with a UK and international tour planned as well as create a new short film based around the live work.
Full details of Hubs, screenings, live performances and professional development workshops and public engagement talks will be posted in March 2021. In the meantime, watch the Moving Kinship Webinar to hear what Beatrice Allegranti and dance artists, Rudzani Moleya, Luke Birch and Takeshi Matsumoto have to say about this unique artistic process.
