Amber Sherwood-Robinson

This piece was originally developed with eight dancers aged nine to 13, and seemed to turn into something dealing with conformity vs. individuality. Since re-working the piece on older dancers, it has taken on an all new meaning, driven by the music and the group’s experiences during the mentorship process. It was fascinating to see how the dancers’ ages and life experiences shaped the piece, and was so inspiring that it greatly informed the creative process. Incorporating elements inherent in both versions of the piece was important, as was the input of all those involved in the mentorship.
