ATMA DANCE SPY MONKEY PROJECT
ATMA Dance were award £4,000 to invest in establishing a family dance programming consortium through Spy Monkey.
Spy Monkey reimagines a classic Indian tale from the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. Co-commissioned by GemArts, ATMA Dance’s new work is aimed for family audiences and school groups. It will be performed by Bharatanatyam and hip hop dancers.
The company's Seed Generator funding will support performances of Spy Monkey in partnership with a pilot-consortium of four South East venues: Norden Farm Arts, Maidenhead; South Hill Park, Bracknell; Corn Exchange, Newbury and Mill Arts Centre, Banbury. Joint objectives for this artist-promoter initiative include establishing a model of good collaborative, communication and marketing practices as identified during the Surf The Wave residency.
