Fire and Water – A major new arts project in Torrington
Dance in Devon in partnership with Wolf and Water will be delivering a new programme of Arts Wave Devon activites in the Torrington learning community, working with Devon County Council. Following a consultation of local people in July we will be launching projects in dance, music, art and film, under the chosen project name and theme of Fire and Water from September. There will be a particular focus towards supporting groups working with children and young people, older people and people with disabilities.
Dance in Devon will be running a series of Silver Dancers workshops at Woodland Vale Residential Home. There will also be public sessions in dance for older people at the local memory café, balance groups and day centers designed to improve balance, reduce falls and enjoy dance. Dance students at Great Torrington School will have the chance to work with contemporary dance company Cscape, performing a new piece at The Plough Arts Centre on the 14th October, opening for Cscape’s latest show. Dance in Devon will also be creating a site specific dance film, bringing together a variety of local dance groups and dancers to make a piece in the local landscape.  
Wolf and Water will be working with The Plough Arts Centre to launch Meet Me at the Plough, which will provide a weekly opportunity for local people to come together to share and develop their arts skills in a relaxed, friendly and fun environment. Wolf and Water will also support 30hz, local music industry professionals, to deliver digital music production and DJ workshops for a variety of local youth groups. There will be opportunities for young people to learn new skills, expand existing ones, learn about new and developing technologies in music production and have a go at creating their own music.
