Description

A captivating touring dance show that delved into the intricacies of social interaction, lifestyle, and routine. The innovative contemporary choreography and digital projection, skilfully crafted by digital artists Illuminos, transported viewers into the heart of a bustling coffee shop.

Set against the backdrop of a vibrant and colourful coffee shop, this unique piece, suitable for all ages, aimed to impress, captivate, and entertain a diverse audience ranging from dance enthusiasts to those new to contemporary dance. Alice and her talented team of dancers masterfully explored the characteristics, lifestyle, and occasionally chaotic scenes within the familiar setting of a coffee shop.

Through a seamless blend of dance and characterisation, the performers brought to life the experiences of an individual in a collective situation and unveiled the private moments nestled within a public space. The dynamic nature of the performance resonated with audiences, creating a rich tapestry of emotions and connections.

One of the distinctive features of Coffee Shop Culture was its adaptability to each venue, as local young dance artists were invited to take on the role of 'Coffee Frantics.' This provided a unique opportunity for up to fifteen young individuals to step into the spotlight of a professional show, challenging them both physically and mentally. The result was a dynamic and ever-evolving performance, enriched by the local talent at each stop of the tour.

Funded by Arts Council England and supported by Déda, Coffee Shop Culture made its premiere at Déda and continued its journey to captivate audiences at the Buxton Pavilion Arts Centre, Lincoln Drill Hall, and Embrace Arts. The show not only showcased the creativity and skill of Alice and her team but also served as a testament to the power of collaboration and the ability of dance to transcend boundaries, leaving an enduring impact on all who experienced this production.
