To wrap up our Oral History Project, students from Pagrav Dance Company and Sanskruti Cambridge shared their working process and movement responses with an audience of invited guests over Zoom.
We have created Dance Well Takeaways filled with activity cards and small objects to help people engage with Indian dance forms from the comfort of their own spaces.
Chamu Kuppuswamy joined the final sessions of the Oral History part of the project in December for Pulse Magazine and captured the essence of this experience in this wonderful article.
We asked our Learning and Participation artists to reflect on their experiences of working differently during lockdown and their blog posts give a fascinating insight into their approaches.
After an abrupt halt to all live creative experiences due to the pandemic, Akademi are delighted to have taken a small, but important step by taking a dance performance to the elderly tenants of Greenwood Sheltered Housing in London Borough of Camden.
Akademi have received funding from Ageing Better in Camden to provide weekly movement workshops for older people living in Camden.
