Children of Christchurch & Holy Trinity Federation

In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, we witnessed signs that the planet was beginning to heal itself from our intense over-use and abuse of its resources. Our martyrdom of the planet, inspired by Bill Viola’s compelling installation in St Paul’s Cathedral, was the starting point for this multi-media, multi-generational dance work, created for this festival. Collaboration has been the watchword for much good that has emerged from our isolated experience this past year – our three choreographers have collaborated to create a response that is both personal and global to our place in understanding how we heal the hurt we have created and move on in hope. Creating with dancers isolated, but connected on Zoom, experience our joy in dancing together again – mature and current students of The Place and children from our Federation of Primary Schools – a connected future in our world.

Carolyn Bolton comes from South Carolina USA where she qualified in dance and choreography. She has created numerous top ten solos for the International Youth America Grand Prix Competition (where she was also a member of their guest faculty). She joined Ballet Rambert in 2013 and is a guest Academic Lecturer at The Place and Trinity Laban schools in London.

Luke Brown is the Artistic Director of Luke Brown Dance, creating his own company in 2014 after dancing with a range of critically acclaimed companies. His company was created to devise emotionally charged and accessible performances that combine dance, text, storytelling and striking set design, collaborating with dancers, hypnotherapists, phycologists, puppeteers, musicians, photographers, actors and singers to explore autobiographical stories and characters. He is a guest choreographer and teacher at The Place.

Natalie Dodd is a dance artist based in London. She trained at Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and is currently the Vice-Director of the UK Dance Federation and one of the movement creators of the Rambert Grades. With a strong track record of performance and choreography, she now works extensively as a teacher and is gaining prominence in the ‘dance for health’ scene. She is a regular teacher at The Place and has created the dance works that have contributed to The Arts and Crafts Festival since 2019.
