Muster

Muster: A bold exercise in dance creation. Cando2, students from Caldicott School and ex-service people from the cast of the award winning West End show, The Two Worlds of Charlie F by Owen Sheers and Combat Veteran Players, came together to form a unique partnership.

Diverse in age, gender, disability and dance experience, the collaboration sought to empower, celebrate and unite a broad range of individuals with a shared passion for dance and dance making.

Bringing their expert approach to inclusive dance practice, artists, Kimberley Harvey and Charlotte Darbyshire led a week of intensive making, exploring the creativity, physicality and identity of each dancer through a range of choreographic tasks.

Culminating in a new dance work, Muster challenged audiences to question their own preconceptions whilst performers built confidence and a sense of belonging within a professional artistic environment.

Muster was produced by Candoco Dance Company, Caldicott School’s Head of Drama Johanna Duncan and Theatre Producer Amanda Faber.
