Initial research for everything that rises must dance was supported by Dance Umbrella in partnership with the Jerwood Choreographic Research Project

Sasha Milavic Davies and composer Lucy Railton worked on a performance for more than 200 women from across London where the choreography, developed by Sasha in collaboration with the participants, comprised two strands: minutely reproduced movements of daily life, gathered through close observation of women at bus stops, lunch queues, in bars, clubs and other public spaces; and fragments of women’s folk dances from around the world.

The Jerwood Choreographic Research Project is a National Dance Network initiative. Partners supporting this project alongside Dance Umbrella included Dance XChange, Greenwich Dance, Sadler’s Wells and Trinity Laban.

This intriguing project exploring relationships, identity and community had its premiere as part of Dance Umbrella 2018 in three different venues: Greenwich Peninsula, Boxpark Croydon and Somerset House.
