Each year Dance City provides support for two Associate Artists, one from the North East region the other from outside the region. Our Associate Artist evening allows us to present short works in progress by both artists.

Ella Mesma. Contemporary, B-Girl and dancing Salsa and Samba for over thirteen years, Ella is interested in these styles to choreograph her artistic work. Her new work Papillon is inspired by a quote from Maya Angelou : “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to
achieve that beauty.”

Peter Groom. Peter is originally from the North East and currently works both from London and Newcastle. In this new piece Peter explores whether the moments of quiet in our lives were elongated over a longer time, what would happen? What memories come back to us in these moments, returning not fully formed but half remembered; half remembered encounters, conversations, touches. Dramaturgy by Kai Green.
