Oak House Alive Video Project

Posted in Uncategorized on July 12, 2012 by The Lift Creative Services

Back in April ACE dance and music dancers Laura Vanhulle and Iona Waite led an exciting dance session with a group of young people from West Bromwich. This was part of a collaborative project between partners; Solar Pictures, Black Country Touring, Sandwell Museums Services and U-Choose Youth Project.

Working with Solar Pictures and dancers Laura & Iona “Young People from West Bromwich create dances inspired by the historical building of Oak House and the items found within it. Candles, rocking chairs, shadows and clocks became the starting point for stories told through dance about the building and its history.”
