Gwyn Emberton Dance and ilDance - iCoDaCo: TRANSFORMATION
Dance artists from Sweden, Poland, Hungary and Hong Kong, including Wales’ own Eddie Ladd are in residency at Chapter to create a new piece of work which interrogates the notion of transformation from transversal viewpoints. They are inviting you to be involved through workshops, a coffee morning, a children’s dance workshop and a preview of the work in progress.
iCoDaCo (International Contemporary Dance Collective) is an artist led, two-year long project of international collaborative residencies, workshops and performances. The project is supported by the European Commission’s Creative Europe Programme, with additional support in Wales from Arts Council of Wales and Chapter Arts.
