MELO COLLECTIVE

Creating for/with youth with special needs

In this seminar we will share our experiences creating dance and music for, and with, children and youth with special needs.

Friday December 14th
16.30 – 18.00
Nordic House, Sæmundargata 11

MELO Collective has since its founding in 2005 created a wide range of works; performances for stage, music collaborations, sound choreography/architecture and interactive performances for children. Since 2012 the works have been more and more specified towards people with special needs. This seminar will be about our working experiences in which we have learnt ways to create performances with and for young people who are differently abled. MELO Collective are passionate about making the dance world more available for everyone and have found ways to work collectively to embrace everyone with all our differences and similarities.
