Farnham in Bloom Dance Programme 2015 - 2019

prev next

Farnham in Bloom is Farnham Town Council's annual environmental event which culminates in the judging of the town's horticultural, community and environmental efforts for the year.  Deadman approached the council to create a performance for the judging day which would see hundreeds of young people dancing along the judging route of the national 'In Bloom' competition.

Despite many raised eyebrows prior to the first event taking place, once the council could see the multiple benefits of hosting such a project as part of its own programme, TDM were invited to deliver the project every year.

The annual site-specific dance project involved around 150 young people and 5 professional dance artists every year and was a high-light of The Dance Movement's calendar.  We hope you enjoy sifting thorugh the images of the project and / or watching the performances.
