Aldeburgh Young Musicians and DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training

In October 2016 vibrant young musicians and dancers from Aldeburgh Young Musicians and DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training came together to collaborate with composer Gavin Higgins and choreographer Alexander Whitley.

The intensive residency explored the creative processes and collaborative relationships in music and dance making. Musicians and dancers alike investigated both movement and sound together, exploring the underlying parallels between the two disciplines, as well as deepening their understanding and appreciation of the other.

They used an analysis of existing dance works and their accompanying scores as a basis for investigating the different ways music and dance can come together to create new works.
