Plans makes its world premiere at Brighton Station
Brighton & Hove’s Three Score Dance Company – a dance company for the over 60s – performed the world premiere of a new co-commission Plans made by former Hofesh Shechter Company dancer James Finnemore amongst the hustle and bustle of Brighton Station this weekend.
Crowds, commuters and tourists came to a standstill as the eighteen dancers performed throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday in a flash-mob.
Three Score Dance Company is the vision of two local women, Saskia Heriz and Christina Thompson, both of whom have been inspired by the work of The Company of Elders; a dance company for the over 60’s resident at the internationally renowned Sadler's Wells Theatre in London. Although many members of Three Score Dance Company have had no prior dance training, their wealth of life experience brings a unique quality to their work. The company is lead by Rehearsal Director, Jason Keenan-Smith, with professional choreographers commissioned to create bespoke pieces for performance.
Three Score Dance Company is supported by South East Dance in association with Brighton Dome with additional funding from Sport England.
