Introducing: The Grid Experience

Exploring movement and shared spaces in the Covid-19 world

What is The Grid Experience?

On Saturday 29 August 2020, we brought The Grid Experience, a brand new Covid Secure participation event to Southampton Guildhall, and invited friends of all ages and abilities to take part.

Through a handful of online rehearsals 64 participants learnt energy building choreography in the comfort of their own homes before magically bringing it all to life in Southampton’s Cultural Quarter.

The eye catching environment and community enthusiasm created a lasting atmosphere for, not only everyone involved but for the Guildhall Square itself. This event challenged people’s perceptions of how dance can be presented by offering an opportunity for people to discover new ways of connecting and new people to connect to.
