Octagon Dance Associate in Residence

31 July 2014

Ben Wright, artistic director of bgroup, was in residence at the Octagon Theatre in July as part of his Dance Associate role. The company was on stage all week as part of the creation process of their new piece Spectrum. Ben was recipient of a bursary created as part of the Octagon Theatre’s Arts Council funded Dance Development project.

Ben said, “I am extremely excited and thankful to receive this support from the Octagon, it is wonderful to feel so actively supported through this alliance and association. The bursary has played a significant role in the creation of our new work Spectrum and we look forward immeasurably to engaging with the Theatre’s local community”.

The finished piece will be performed at the Octagon Theatre on Tuesday 14 April 2015.

The second bursary application process will launch in August; keep an eye open as we will announce it here.
