Talented young performers from Portrait, Dorset’s youth contemporary dance company, will be showcasing new and developed works in their end of year performance at Bay Theatre Weymouth College, 7.30pm on Wednesday 23 July.
The group of eight dancers aged 14-21 have been learning new skills and creating innovative work all year. They have performed at regional dance showcases in Taunton and Southampton, at local festivals and worked with national choreographers from Urban Playground, Zoo Nation and 2Faced Dance companies. The show also includes work created by dance graduate and ex Portrait member Elinor Male through the Youth Dancer Scheme funded by Pavilion Dance South West.
Historically Portrait has created dances with artists and companies including Hofesh Shechter, Jasmin Vardimon, Ballet Rambert, Tavaziva Dance, Subathra Subramaniam, Mobius Dance Theatre, David Toole and Sarah Shorten. They have performed at many venues including Weymouth 2012 Olympics, Dorchester Arts Centre, Bridport Arts Centre, Lighthouse Poole, Pavilion Dance and the Inside Out Festival.
