Heritage Performance Commission
In a time when live performance is precious, Akademi is excited about pioneering a new initiative that sits at the intersection of choreography, community and performance.
This commission involves responding to an Akademi heritage object through a choreographic solo, and through a workshop plan aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils. The three artists are working together as a new team to deliver their solos and workshops at a number of primary schools in 2021.
