Folk Dance Remixed are locked away in a rehearsal studio this week learning about Rugby. Oh yes! We have been commissioned by Brent Council to create a piece for the opening of their new cultural space in Willesden, as well as celebrating the Rugby World Cup being in Brent (which is hosting the Wembley Stadium matches).
We are incorporating the four countries and host country into our new piece – so representing and remixing traditional dance from Ireland, Argentina, Romania, New Zealand and UK! This week we have experts from Irish Folk Dance and UK folk dance in the company and are getting in Romanian Folk Specialists, NZ and a Rugby expert!
We have our musical director and composter, Dogan Mehmet, working on the music too.
Watch this space for details of the gig on 12th September in Willesden!
