Autumn 2012 – LLDC was resident at Yorkshire Dance, Leeds last autumn, to develop the Legacy of Hidden Beauty performance piece and to established the links with Leeds. We also hold a morning professional class and sharing performance at the end of our residency.

Autumn 2011 – LLDC was resident at Batley Art Gallery, Batley, for 3 weeks, with our live interactive performance, which included dance, digital media and visual arts. The art gallery never worked with dancer artist and this was new theme for them to explore. The collaborative artist created a visual sculpture for the dancers to interact with as well as to stand on their own within the space. The theme was to reconnect with the space and nature which Batley Art Gallery offered. We worked with four different community groups within Batley area (children and adults) and developed this performance, which local residence viewed with live performance every Saturday for 3 weeks.

April 2011 – LLDC was resident at Armley Mills: The Leeds Industrial Museum for 3weeks, to connect with the unusually spaces which the Armley Mills offered. We worked with Dosti Women’s group and engaged them with the visual art and dance workshops. The dancers (Lucie Lee & Chris Nykiel) then perform the Hidden Beauty dance routine with video projection projected in the Victoria Street setting. We used three distinct spaces, however all connecting with nature, environment and the space itself. The contrast of past and present gave us starting point, heavy machinery and the textile connection to the nature gave us fascinating theme to play with. Armley Mills offered very exciting space to work with and the visitors could explore the grounds of Mills with an unique experience.
