All the dancers took part in a week-long intensive workshop thinking about the new post-pandemic world and how things have changed, to create this brand new, specially commissioned piece ‘You’re on mute’.
The Candoco Dance Company will also be performing one of their repertoire pieces Set and Reset / Reset as a stunning highlight to the festival.
Additional Youth Dance Companies from Inspire and Hub Dance (Lincolnshire) will be taking part in this inclusive festival
The performance, which will also be audio described with headsets available from staff in the foyer, takes place on Sunday, May 15, from 6pm at the Mansfield Palace theatre.
