A mesh is an interconnected web where each part is indispensable.

A group of dancers weave through streets, indoor and outdoor public spaces creating collaborative, self-organizing and moving sculptural formations responding to site, architecture, and the public. MESH Invites audiences and passers-by to physically join with collaborative interactions, creating a ritual of togetherness in different public spaces. MESH brings people together to offer an experience of interdependence, collaboration, proximity and play amongst strangers.

The creation was supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire Dance, Leeds Beckett University and The Hepworth Wakefield gallery. In 2018 MESH was co-commissioned for final production by The Great Exhibition of The North, Dance City, Yorkshire Dance and Activate Performing Arts, performing in Newcastle, Leeds Light Night and Hull Freedom Festival, In 2019 we toured in the UK and in South Korea: The UK Dance Showcase, Dancing Town Barnsley, Ulsan Promenade Festival and Gwacheon Festival. We also run outreach workshops throughout the UK and in Malta.
