StopGap Dance Company rehearsal

On Monday I was at Farnham Maltings to draw Stopgap Dance Company during one of the final rehearsals before the Autumn tour begins, opening on Thursday 23rd September at Weymouth College Theatre and in London on 20th November at Robin Howard Dance Theatre. StopGap are an integrated dance company working with dancers with physical or learning disabilities as well as non-disabled dancers. They will perform a double bill, Trespass, choreographed by Thomas Noone and Rob Tannion, the company rehearsed Splinter by Rob Tannion while I was with them.
