This series of improvised performances across public spaces and hospital wards were Alder Hey in the Park’s inaugural dance performance.
“The concept of birds taking flight, just as our hospital community took flight into the new surroundings, runs throughout the performances. Small Things performed four dances in total, in different locations of the hospital. Beautiful and poignant, quirky and characterful, the performances captivated our patients and their families as well as many of the healthcare professionals. Creating site-specific dance performances in an acute paediatric hospital is not without its challenges but Small Things sensitivity and understanding of both the building and the people who use it, made this a highly successful venture and something Alder Hey would like to develop further.” Vicky Charnock, Art Co-ordinator
