Cultural Connectors Respond

At the beginning of September we recruited a series of Cultural Connectors between the age of 18 - 24 and gave them the brief to find inventive ways to encourage their peers to watch Neon’s latest work PuzzleCreature. We had a fantastic group join us from around the UK and we’ve been loving their unique responses to the work so far. We’re really happy to share a few responses and reactions to PuzzleCreature below. Explore Youtube dance poetry, a postcard design and a graphic artwork, all responding to the PuzzleCreature performance experience. A massive thank you to Izzy, Rin, Lucia, Jorja, Arseca, Christiana and Abbey for taking part.

Where was I? Being within a structured space: my response to 'PuzzleCreature', a new multi-disciplinary dance performance inspired by the death-eluding architecture designs of Arakawa and Madeline Gins. The piece was choreographed by Adrienne Hart. I worked with the company as a Cultural Connector, and saw a performance at The Place, London on 13th October.
