Sioned Huws’ Aomori Aomori, performed at The Newton and Arkwright Building, Nottingham Trent University.

Produced by Dance4 - Heather Forknell and Jim Hendley

Sioned Huws piece Aomori Aomori is part of a long-term collaboration that link the mountains of Sioned’s native Wales with the landscape of Aomori Japan. The performance brings together a cast of ten dancers, musicians and singers from across the globe, alongside local performers for the latest incarnation of the Aomori Project; a celebration of transformational landscapes and architectural spaces.

It’s been wonderful being able to co-produce Sioned Huws’ Aomori Aomori Tour (England, Wales and Italy - see here for more details). Yesterday was Sioned’s first Aomori Project Workshop in Nottingham. It was lovely to welcome participants from all walks of life, and was great knowing that the participants were so open and creative - with experience in art, dance, photography, teaching and writing. The Dance4 building came alive, with the workshop being both inside and outside the Dance4 studios. It was lovely to see, and I am so excited for the final performance this Sunday 13 July, at the Newton and Arkwright Building, Nottingham Trent University at 3pm.
