MovE17: 'Inspired by RAIN'
Waltham Forest parents and their children join MovE17, Waltham Forest’s community dance company, to perform a fun and inspiring new work by MovE17 Director, Clare Farrow.
The piece uses RAIN, a seminal dance work by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker from 2001 as its inspiration. Set to the original score by Steve Reich, this work is centred around free flowing movements, spirals, running and jumping. This is a good contrast for MovE17’s performance of Rosas danst Rosas performed at the Walthamstow Garden Party as pop up performances around the site, where the local residents perform impressive, intricately-timed every day movements while seated on chairs.
