Moving Through Time

A free half-term project for 14-21 year olds at the National Portrait Gallery

Over three days participants made a dance piece inspired by the National Portrait Gallery’s Tudor exhibition, Elizabeth I and her people.

Working with inspiring choreographer Vanessa Cook, participants learnt new choreographic skills and performed in the prestigious public gallery.  The focus of the work was to apply a contemporary perspective to the exhibition by generating movement based on details taken from The Three Goddesses painting, such as considering posture and gait or studying patterns and texture.

‘Despite the diverse range of individual backgrounds and experiences the project turned out very well and suited everybody’s ability, and it looked unified. It inspired me as a choreographer.’ Participant
