Velcro Dance Company

Marie-Louise Flexen has been in touch about this exciting new dance company; Velcro is an integrated dance company through which disabled and non-disabled performers and choreographers can develop. The company devises its own work, performs contemporary dance and undertakes commissions and education work. The aim is to produce inspiring and powerful dance performances and to influence formal education locally and nationally. Underlying all the company’s work is a belief in equality and empowerment (making Velcro proactively integrated), and the balance between performance and education.

FEAST is a selection of performance, workshops, talks and demonstrations which venues can mix up for audiences to sample.
Gloucestershire Dance can organise and manage a fun family event fusing food and dance - this is not just a show!  GD staff will bring together your venue with local communities, workshop providers / chefs and / or restaurants.

The Feast performance piece uses conventions of people eating together to explore different cultural attitudes.  We witness how relationships are strained and rebuilt around the dining table!
The 25 minute piece was created for Velcro in 2010 by internationally renowned choreographer Marc Brew (Scottish Dance Theatre).  It is danced to a specially commissioned soundtrack by Tiago Oliviera.
