Dance Offerings | Review
In June, Dance in Devon hosted 'Dance Offerings'- an evening of dance held at Dartington SPACE as part of the Tagore Festival. The evening was packed with a variety of fantastic performances from artists based here in the South West. The sun was shining all weekend adding to the wonderful atmosphere to the Tagore Festival - there were even some surprise guests in the audience, Wayne McGregor and Antoine Vereecken who we were delighted to welcome to the evening! Below are some thoughts of the evening from artists' and audience members alike;
"It was such an incredible experience and its made me so excited about making work in the area in Dartington and Devon overall"
(Richard Chappell, Artist)
"One of my most pleasurable experiences of an evening of dance"
