Friday 15 September | 3.00pm & 6.00pm
DanceEast and Roman River Music Festival present a beautiful afternoon of dance and live music in the spectacular location of St Martin’s Church, Colchester.
Charismatic cellist Matthew Sharp will be performing a short programme of works including Bach and Britten. He is joined on stage by a group of dynamic dancers choreographed by Joseph Toonga. Award-winning dance maker Joseph, who works in a unique contemporary and hip-hop fusion style, has previously presented sell-out performances of To Be Felt at Orford Church on the Suffolk Coast.
In 2015, Joseph Toonga was the first recipient of DanceEast’s Choreographic Development Award, enabling his continued artistic development and the creation of this piece.
Originally commissioned in 2016 by DanceEast with generous support from the St Bartholomew’s Church David Andren Legacy.
