Small Things Dance Collective is an artist led organisation that explores a multi-disciplinary approach to creating performance in environments.
This process cultivates a collaborative approach to dance making, creates innovative audience relationships to performance and develops participatory practice. The heightened sensory experience of the intimate encounter with people and place informs this work, which is process oriented and supported by our experience in improvisational, somatic and environmental dance practices.
Since 2008 this approach has been researched through the successful From Where You Are dance and health project at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool. Small Things was formed in 2002 and past projects have included dance, visual artists and filmmakers working collaboratively and inclusively with children, young people, asylum seekers and learning disabled adults in contexts as diverse as Victoria Baths, Manchester and the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales.
