From 17th - 21st September "Bespoke" Tour choreographer Freddie Opoku-Addaie was joined by all four of our Dance Compass Ambassadors along with each each area's selected craft artist in a week of colloboration and development at Beaford Arts.

The week was spent exploring each craft artist's work and how their individual medium of work could be interwoven into each dance performance on the Tour.

Each performance on the tour will be "hand -crafted" so to speak, adapting the core piece to speak with a different voice on each leg of the Tour. Most importantly, it means each leg is a celebration of the craft and artists in that community. The tour is a celebration of what makes each of these communities unique and special and it is this aspect of the tour which is a core value of the Compass Project.
