A new scheme to link dancers in South West England with those in Normandy and Brittany aims to stimulate artistic innovation and co-operation in contemporary dance between France and Britain. The two-year project will see members of dance organisations from either side of the Channel job shadowing, taking up residencies and touring in each other’s countries. It will also include a unique early years programme designed to work across the partnership. It has been funded with £2.9 m (€3.5m) of investment from the Interreg IVA (Channel) France-England programme and British partners include The Point in Eastleigh, South East Dance in Brighton and Hextable, and Take Art in Somerset.
