Because of You…Denmark

ACT-BELONG-COMMIT Because of You… is a child-centred dance project created by choreographer Sandi Woo.  Through online workshops, young children make dance with a significant adult in their life that ultimately becomes a live performance streamed from their homes to the world.   Using green screen technology, original music by David Rastrick, illustrations from Katherine McKenzie and set design from David McKenzie, this 20 minute performance captures the love, fun and challenges of family life.   In May 2020, families in Denmark (Kwoorabup), WA created their own version of Because of You.. performing to nearly 1000 people online.  You can see the joy and magic of this project, captured during COVID-19 isolation.
