Exploring how choreographed gallery experiences can impact upon depth of engagement
From 2015 to 2017, Dancing Museums was a two- year research project featuring five dance organisations, five choreographers and eight museums and galleries. The project comprised eight residencies, each lasting two weeks. Residencies included research time for the lead choreographer and a week of audience engagement.
The project was conceived to explore ways in which working together might result in more powerful interpretations or experiences of art – in the case of the National Gallery, paintings.
Gill Hart, Head of Education at the National Gallery, London presented a text based on a conversation with Kate Coyne, Programme Director, Siobhan Davies Dance, and choreographer and dancer Lucy Suggate. You can download the text here .
