TSDC is a group of over 60s dancers led by Artistic Director Jason Keenan-Smith. Since 2011 we have performed new contemporary dance and delivered outreach projects for elders. This year we are creating an evening of dance from four diverse choreographers – Jose Agudo, Ben Duke and Artistic Director Jason Keenan-Smith; we are seeking a fourth female choreopaher aged 55+ who is from outside the UK.
This marks ‘A New Beginning’ of ambition, reach and operation for the company. Investment will also enable us to develop performance skills, audience test the work, elder group exchanges with artistic and wellbeing outcomes for 60+ adults, identify ways to fund this work in the long-term. Clearcut is currently developing relationships and tour booking for 2019 and 2020. We are interested to hear from other older dancers and groups who wish to exchange ideas and activities with us.
With thanks to Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants for generous support for this R&D stage of the project.
