What is CAT WEEK 2020?
CAT Week 2020 will shine a light onto our DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training (CAT). The CAT is part of a national programme that offers world-class pre-vocational dance training to young people with exceptional potential..
As part of their training, the CAT students work with leading choreographers to create a series of performances for the DanceEast CAT annual End of Year Show. This gives the students an insight into the professional dance world and the opportunity to create a brand-new dance work, or to re-stage or re-imagine an existing professional dance work. During the week, the CAT students will be taking part in the CAT Digital Summer Intensive working with leading choreographers including Anna Williams, Martin Lawrance, Alleyne Dance, James Cousins, and Jamaal Burkmar. DanceEast CAT Alumni will also have the opportunity to take part in a workshop with New Adventures, led by Resident Artist Kerry Biggin.
Each evening there will be screenings on our Facebook page from previous CAT End of Year Shows that were filmed at DanceEast in the Jerwood DanceHouse. These will highlight some fantastic previous performances, starting with a restaging of Didy Veldman’s The Knot, and ending with the full-length work Park Road created by Jasmin Vardimon Company. There is also a full programme of CAT works choreographed by Jess and Morgs, Joseph Toonga and more. Each performance will be available to watch for 24 hours via vimeo – www.danceeast.co.uk/whats-on for more information.
