Expanding the Picture

This exciting, interdisciplinary research and performance project, co-created by dance artist Mary Prestidge, was designed to support the development of Tony Carroll along with Diana Disley as two emerging dance artists, and both members of our inclusive arts programme Blue Room. This five minute film, created by Soup Co., captures the essence of the collaboration, the journey and the magic of the performance itself.
