The Man In The Moon and Rhythmic Collision Dance Company (based at Surrey Choices Lockwood, Guildford) were literally over the moon with their result at this years Godalming Music Festival, 90 marks and Honours for their piece “Welcome to Holland” based on the moving essay by Emily Perl Kingsley. The piece was about the experience of having a child with disabilities.
The glowing adjudication said, ‘This was a very slick piece of work physically, (it) worked well as an ensemble with a wonderful sense of commitment.’
The relationship between The Man In The Moon youth theatre and Rhythmic Collision Dance Company began over five years ago, when Rhythmic Collision first performed in the Theatre Tent at GuilFest. Since then, the two groups have worked together on various projects and performances at The Electric Theatre in Guildford.
Paul, from The Man In The Moon said, ‘I’m extremely proud of everyone involved. For a group to work so closely together on work like this takes an enormous amount of focus and trust, and the group is going from strength to strength.
The dancers from Rhythmic Collision said, “It was really good. Nice people to work with at The Man in the Moon, they helped us act”.
“We would really like to work with them again, dancing and acting”.
