SALT 2019 Festival of Landscape Dance

December 4, 2019

SALT 2019 brought together young people and audiences across Cornwall in a 3 month programme of professional performances, young peoples choreographic and performance projects. Events took place in Pendeen, Penzance, Falmouth, Redruth, St Austell, Bodmin, Liskeard, Minions and Bude.

The programme included ‘Moving The Earth’, a site specific performance event for schools and young people developed in collaboration with Geevor Tin Mine and Joss Arnott Dance. ‘Terrarium’ delivered in partnership with Simon Birch Dance was performed by schools and young people at a very special open air performance and picnic at The Hurlers stone circles at Minions on Bodmin Moor. International choreographer Joss Arnott worked with our Propeller young peoples performance group to create an original new work ‘Drift’ and performed at The House theatre in Plymouth, The Keay Theatre St Austell and the Geevor Tin Mine. Joss Arnott Dance brought us their fantastic new outdoor work ‘PULSE!’ that we presented in Penzance, Bodmin and St Austell in association with White River Developments, Penlee Park, Jubilee Pool and IntoBodmin. Southpaw Dance Company brought their astonishing outdoor touring work ‘Icarus’ to us in August with 11 performances in Bude, St Austell, Liskeard, Redruth, Falmouth and Penzance in association with Bude Castle, Ploughman’s Festival Liskeard, White River Developments, Redruth Town Council, Falmouth Town Council, Prince of Wales Pier and Penlee Park.
