Subtle Kraft visited the University for a practical workshop with students on the BA (Hons) Dance course.
They returned the following day to stage a unique performance and question and answer session.
Subtle Kraft is an inclusive contemporary dance company who use movement as an expression of enjoyment, communication and humanity. The visit to Teesside was part of its ‘Moments Revisited’ tour which is also calling at London and Edinburgh.
Around 25 students took part in the workshop and benefited from learning new techniques and perspectives of dance teaching and choreography.
Lorraine Smith, Senior Lecturer in Dance, said: ‘Both myself and the students were inspired by Subtle Kraft’s work. The company engaged the students in new innovative methods of translating movement to a wide range of people. They create and present their work in a very interesting way and it provided the students with an inspiring approach to choreography and performance.’
