Utopia

Christina Binney FuZe8 Dance Alumni

Spring Term – January to April 2021

This term FuZe8 have been working online with Dance Artist Christina Binney, exploring the concept of utopia. With the current restrictions of COVID, the youth company have been working via Zoom to experience their own virtual escapism through dance. The group have choreographed in response to their own dreamy, idealistic locations that transport them away from where we might be right now. Christina and the youth company have introduced the use of Makaton, a unique language programme that uses symbols and signs, to generate movement and explore the idea of communicating a message in our own ways. The choreography created will be presented through a short film over Easter and later developed in the studio when restrictions are lifted.
