Charnwood Arts

Dance artist and choreographer Rong Tao from Chongqing worked with Charnwood Arts on his second month long residency in January/February 2012. He worked with children, young people and adults, dancers and non-dancers to explore their creativity and choreograph new pieces of dance. This performance is with a group from Loughborough College where Rong Tao worked with Kevin Ryan to run workshops for a much larger group. The film of the performance was made by Natalie Chabaud of Charnwood Arts and was shot at Lakeside Arts Centre Chinese New Year celebrations in Nottingham. The group performed, outdoors in the freezing cold to an audience of around 6,000 people. The residency is part of the ongoing Charnwood Arts UK2K!2 programme connecting communities and cultures.
