World Dance Day Performance at Clovelly Court

April 29th 2010

Making Dance for World Dance Day from Dan Farberoff on Vimeo.

Here are some instructions to make your own site-specific dance to celebrate World Dance Day on April 29th 2010.
"Find a place to make a dance. A lone figure on a cliff. A lone figure standing on a chair in the
middle of an empty field. The landscape large, the body small. Locate a compass. You are facing north..."

As you dance you can also think of the amazing coastline in North Devon and by so doing you can
also help to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the North Devon Coast Area's of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
