Dancing Bodies in Coventry is a Coventry University funding City of Culture 2021 seed funded project that is being led by researchers from Coventry University’s Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE). Dancing Bodies in Coventry is a multimedia project that will start to document the legacy of dance in the city of Coventry. The project aims to make several films, two podcasts, and visual banners and aims to have a public sharing at a location in Coventry.

Through the making of several films DBiC we will start to create an archive for the city that is focussed on dance. The project aims to bring forward a range of dance artists, festival organisers, dance schools and local groups, and allow them to share their dance stories with the wider Coventry community. The films will sit online and will be publicly available for people to view. All images and videos will be created with the intention to celebrate the dance legacy of the city.

The project team includes:

Rosa Cisneros (Lead of the project)

Marie-Louise Crawley (Podcast host and project member)

Raluca Maria Polodeanu (Official Videographer)

Antony Weir (Official Photographer)

David Sherriff (Official Music artist)
