In May we were very grateful to receive a grant from Arts Council England to support the development of our performance work at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. This included CPD for project artists Sam Hickey and Louise Gibbons in the form of a 5 day intensive with NY based dance artist K.j. Holmes. In addition K.j. was in residence with Small Things and led performance training with a particular focus on the voice and sonic environment with the dancers and musicians. This greatly enhanced our two day tour of the hospital in June.
