Youth & Education

A collaboration with students from 2Faced Dance company and St Marys High School in Lugwardine, Herefordshire, to create a World War One production that combined filmed interviews of service men and women with live dance and acting performances.

The inspiration for the World War One setting came from a discovery that 27 servicemen from Lugwardine died during the conflict of 1914-1918, and the resulting desire to create a tribute that would educate and foster remembrance.

We trained 15 young people from St Mary's School in filmmaking skills and conducted the project in two stages: 1) choreographing, performing and filming the live piece; and 2) researching the material, interviewing people who experienced the conflict, and documenting the entire process.
