About this project:
We are raising money to be able to go and perform at the world's biggest Arts festival - The Edinburgh Fringe 2017. In order to make it happen, we would like to introduce ourselves and ask for your support.
We are a multimedia dance company which is producing "Escape 2" - an aerial and pole dance performance. "Escape 2" builds on last year's successful aerial dance, "Escape" by Joanna Puchala and introduces pole dance choreography by Natalie Taylor. Aerial dance with silks is combined with pole dance to create a unique performance that breaks the convention of the pole dance stereotype and creates a new aspect of pole dance merged into aerial and contemporary dance. All that is connected to the human rights around the subject of refugees.
"Escape 2" will be presented in Edinburgh at Fringe festival from 4th to 19th of August at Greenside at Nicolson Square. The London's Preview will take place at Blue Elephant Theatre 7-9 July.
LCP Dance Theatre draws awareness to human rights violations through dance and presents the emotional journey of a refugee through struggle, despair and the search for freedom. Fusing pole and silks performance with dance theatre ” Escape 2″ explores the impact of a new environment on a refugee, who must face social, political and psychological challenges in order to integrate wth a new society.
