XOXO Bournemouth

Nicholas Minns was at Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth with Luca Silvestrini’s Protein during their Real Life Real Dance residency with Quay School in March.  He writes about the highs and lows of making XOXO with young people at risk of exclusion from mainstream school and gives his impressions of the final performance in his Writing About Dance blog.

” … Silvestrini adapts the piece again. I can’t imagine too many choreographers who can deal with this kind of instability and uncertainty, but he does, brilliantly, as do his dancers and the remaining students.”
