11 Million Reasons to Dance accompanies the exhibition of the same name and is a special commission for Coventry, as part of People Dancing’s national programme to positively profile Deaf and disabled people who dance.
In Coventry, presented by Coventry Performing Arts in partnership Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre, local Dance Artists Alexis Haines and Stephanie Sandy have been working with a number of schools including: Baginton Fields School, Castle Wood school, Tiverton school, Sherbourne Fields School, and Corley centre, to create new dance performance work to be showcased alongside a duet by Kate Marsh & Welly O’Brien, who, as dancers with missing limbs, are both interested in the specificity of their own physicality and how this informs and enriches their collaborative practice and performance.
Presented in partnership with People Dancing, the development organisation and membership body for community and participatory dance, working across the UK and internationally.
Exhibition and Interactive Booth
11 Million Reasons is a life affirming photography exhibition inspired by iconic dance scenes from film, all re-imagined by Deaf, sight impaired and disabled people who dance. The title of the exhibition reflects the fact there are more than 11 million disabled people in the UK.
