Indepen-dance 4 is back out on tour with GROW this Autumn and is heading to Johnstone.
It’s the first day of spring and tiny tendrils of new life are peeping out of the ground, stretching their way into the sunshine and producing a riot of glorious colour. GROW is a curious, hypnotic and playful adventure for 3-5 year olds!
GROW is brought to you by Indepen-dance 4, Scotland’s inclusive professional dance company. It is directed by Anna Newell, who has been described by the Guardian as ‘a hero of children’s theatre.’ Award-winning composer, David Goodall’s entrancing musical score reflects Sunday Herald Culture Award winner, Hayley Earlam’s mesmerising choreography. GROW is set in an array of springtime colours by theatre designer Brian Hartley.
Indepen-dance 4 are the professional inclusive performance company wing of Indepen-dance, an award-winning inclusive dance company for disabled and non-disabled people. It promotes a diverse and inclusive society, which is not only enriching but is the foundation of a more sustainable future for everyone in the dance field and beyond. Its artistic approach is to ensure the arts, and dance in particular, is inclusive and that children, young people and adults who are disabled are fully included in the creative process of making, performing and being an audience for dance. All its activities are offered to disabled and non-disabled people, providing everyone with the opportunity to learn from each other and share a creative experience.
GROW is supported by Creative Scotland, The Trades House of Glasgow Commonweal Fund and The Work Room.
The director is Anna Newell, Composer David Goodall, Choreographer Hayley Earlam, Designer Brian Hartley and dancers Jack Anderson, Hayley Earlam, Neil Price and Adam Sloan.
