About the event

Special Dance Double Bill - Corali and Sage Dance Company

In a break from tradition to our Breathe Regularly lunchtime concerts we are delighted to present these two exciting dance companies on a shared platform as an early evening performance.

Both are companies and artsist that share Breathe's vision to open the arts to as wide an audience as possible and promote the arts for health and wellbeing.

Corali

Corali is an exciting professional performance group made up of adults with learning disabilities. Corali exists to explore the unique creativity and expression of people with learning disabilities by putting on original performance works and by offering on-going professional development, education and training opportunities. They create and tour highly visual performance work made in collaboration with other non-disabled artists (photographers, musicians, filmmakers, artists).  The work is fresh and innovative and often performed in different settings such as art galleries, theatres and other unusual places like empty shop units. Today they present in the large Atrium space at Guy's Hospital. Today’s piece will be presented by members of the company. Corali also run regular workshops and outreach work as well as in-service training and disability education workshops.

Sage 

Sage Dance Company is a community dance company for people aged 60 years and over. The mandate for the company is to continually create new work for performance and improve the members’ technique and further their skills through the rehearsal and performing process. This has led to increased abilities in learning skills and memory capacities as well as maintaining both the health and fitness of the dancers.

The work they do is sophisticated, challenging, fun and of genuine quality. As an original and unique classical ballet company, Sage are pushing back frontiers and boundaries by showing that the senior citizens within society can continue to live rich and healthy lives, be creative and acquire new knowledge and skills. Sage are great advocates for the causes of older people and, as role models, are living their vision of a more creative and healthier society.
