Home from Home
Luca Silvestrini announced as Creative Director of Home from Home, the ambitious new project from EncoreEast.
Home from Home brings together 50 dancers all aged over 50 in creative collaboration with leading choreographers to celebrate the talent and creativity of older dancers. The pioneering project is a collaboration between DanceEast, Norwich Theatre and The Place, alongside their respective dance companies, EncoreEast, Cadenza, Damn Fine Dance and The Place Dancers, as the largest, most complex project EncoreEast has undertaken to date. Protein’s Artistic Director is thrilled to be entrusted to ensure the artistic excellence and to oversee choreographers Alethia Antonia, Laura Anderson, Molly Wright, Luke Birch and Alleyne Dance, all of whom have been co-commissioned by the project.
Luca commented “I am incredibly excited by the innovative nature of this project and the impact it’s going to have. It’s refreshing to see several choreographers, companies of older dancers and venues coming together, combining their different voices and experiences and contributing towards a seamless and cohesive piece of dance theatre. It’s great to be orchestrating this with the wonderful and inspiring EncoreEast and thanks to DanceEast, The Place and Norwich Theatres for supporting such a pioneering initiative.”
As part of the project, a series of free Zoom workshops are open for booking with the Home from Home choreographers, including Protein’s Luca Silvestrini whose workshop is on the 16th July at 6.30pm.
