In 2000, Vincent Dance Theatre was awarded £35,000 to run Germinate, a two-year programme of work looking at the interface between dance and digital technology in both the community and professional environment. Year One delivered four exceptional projects for young people (14- 25 year olds across the Yorkshire region), the production of four digital video shorts, the setting up of Vincent Dance Theatre’s web site, the buying of necessary technical hardware and the development of new links with key partners in the region.
Martial Dance was a five-day intensive dance residency at the Point Arts Centre in Doncaster for Young Women (11 – 24 years), which looked at combining South Asian Dance (Bharatha Natyam), self-defence fighting forms and contemporary dance. The residency culminated in a sharing of work made on June 1st 2001 and the making of a documentary video short. To order a DVD copy, please contact the VDT office.
