In rehearsal with Leanne King for Central's Summer Performance

Calendar Posted 10 June 2019

This week Leanne King is working with Central's first year students on her new contemporary work All in Four which will feature in Central's Summer Performance at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London on 18 and 19 July.

All in Four is a celebration; The score, created by Philip Feeney is based on Monteverdi’s 'Beatus Vir' – 'Blessed Be' and is uplifting and joyous. The piece has been co-produced with the students and involves elements of movement created from task-based work around their feelings of happiness.

Speaking about the process so far Leanne says "Having taught the first year students since September 2018, it is exciting to create a new project with them in the final term, and a lovely conclusion to the academic year. We are working closely with Central's Musical Director, Philip Feeney to finalise the score. Philip has re-written sections and extended the piece. He will be working with violinists from the Royal Academy of Music to record these new sections in their bespoke studios. This is an exciting collaborative project between myself, the dancers, composer, musicians and an external world renowned institution."

All in Four is one of seven pieces of repertoire that will form Central's annual Summer Performance. This is a chance to see over 100 dancers from all three year groups perform a variety of classical and contemporary repertoire.
