Candoco Associate Artists and choreographers Jemima Hoadley and Welly O’Brien worked with participants from Cando2, Kings College students, pupils from local schools and The Combat Veteran Players to produce an original piece of choreography looking at the impact of war on the individual and the collective.

The participants, many with no previous dance experience, created a unique piece over a 6-day workshop period culminating in an original dance performance.

The free public performances took place in Somerset House East Wing, moving down into the exhibition spaces in the Inigo Rooms.

This performance forms part of the Traces of War exhibition project curated by Kings College London. Find out more here. (@Warstudies #tracesofwar)
