A free outdoor photo exhibition

The exhibition officially ended on 14 May - but you'll find images at Lakefest 12-15 August.

Choreographer and photographer, Mark Anderson of infuseDANCE, and Clare Wood of Dancefest, worked with people all ages just before lockdown - in dance classes, schools, and community groups.

They used dance and photography to reimagine buildings and spaces in Worcester, to mark Dancefest’s 30th anniversary.

Mark also worked with youth dance companies at Dancefest’s Youth Movement performance at Artrix, Bromsgrove, exploring how the theatre’s indoor and outdoor spaces might be used.

Some of the stunning photos created are brought together in Reimagine, a large-scale outdoor photographic trail, free for all the family to enjoy in a safe and socially distant way.

Reimagine survey

Have you seen our Reimagine exhibition? If you have, we'd love it if you could fill in our survey - it's anonymous, only takes a few minutes - and helps us such a lot!

Get involved

Sadly, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we can't perform live dance alongside the exhibition, as we'd originally planned - so we're handing that job over to you!

Why not take your own photos and videos in response to the images, write something about them, rename them or follow the suggestions in your trail map?

Share your photos and videos on social media, tag Dancefest and use the hashtag #ReimagineDancefest

Many thanks to Arts Council England, Crowngate, Worcester City Council, University of Worcester, The Hive, Worcester Racecourse, The Rowlands Trust and City Signs for their support, and Boffy Arts and Events for management of the project
