Through August we’re making our theatre and studios at Pavilion Dance Covid Secure and doing technical maintenance. I’m so pleased to say we’ll be seeing dancers and choreographers using our spaces from 1 September subject to any Lockdowns or other Covid action over-riding this. It won’t be ‘back as we know it’ but really will be a new way of ‘being’ with everyone coming to the building booked in advance and having to adhere to Covid safe guidelines. Staff will mainly continue to work remotely.
Details of how we’re working and our Covid Secure protocol will go onto our website by the end of August.
Throughout the month we have programmes of digital and live dance including :
“Let’s Move”, a national online dance summer school for 8-17 year olds, taking place from 12-14 August in collaboration with Dance East and The Place.
“Sun/Dance” a series of short dance films by SW choreographers shot in the landscape which will be available from 14-20 August.
A live and digital event with “GoggleDance”, by VOXED. Inspired by Channel 4’s GoggleBox, the company perform outside the window of four households across Bournemouth Christchurch & Poole chosen through an open selection process with a professional film of each inside the house/outside the house interaction being available a couple of weeks later.
Closing our building and stopping live activity has prevented us earning income and we really need your support. Two ways to support us are by using the donate button on our website or you can sign up to Give As You Live – where every time you shop we’ll receive a donation at no cost to you – virtuous purchasing!
Have a great summer.
