Karen Anderson Adam Sloan with Indepen-dance 4


Adam Sloan  is a dance artist  who performs with Indepen-dance 4, during his Creative Residency Adam will continue to develop his first piece of choreography with the three other dance artists in Indepen-dance 4.

 The piece will explore the theme of  a group of people going on a journey together for the first time and the individual quirks of each person as they get to know each other over the course of the journey and what friendships develop.

 Adam has invited George Adam to be his mentor in this project. George has created work that Adam has performed in previously but this will be the first time that they have worked in this way together. They first worked together on the European project that George choreographed bring dancers from 4 countries. Adam admired how George worked with such a large cast and how he brought the company together to create the work that all the performers felt confident in. George will be a sounding board, supporting Adam to bring clarity in how he communicates with the dancers and how to manage the studio time through observing and feed backing.

 Adam hopes that this project will develop his choreographic skills and progress his career has a choreographer as well as developing as a more rounded dance artist able to work in different contexts as a maker, performer and teacher.

There will be a sharing of work on Friday the 18th of August at 4pm, please RSVP to sara@theworkroom.org.uk if you wish to attend.
