Nafiat Tendu Bukenya - connectingvibes* 2012

It has been a busy time for connectingvibes* recently as the company strives to fundraise for the forthcoming trip to Grenada and get on with its usual business of creating and performing work. The support over the last few weeks has been fantastic and we are encouraged by the response to our fundraising campaign on the website. Many thanks for all your support and good wishes.

Last week the company performed for the Annual Conference for the Black and Multicultural Forum in the Civic Suite at Lewisham Town Hall. The company performed “Breeze Easy”, on carpet in a council chamber, which although unusual, was a particularly enjoyable event for the warm reception that the company received from the delegates. The organisers did everything they could to make the dancers feel appreciated. Thank you and we hope to continue to have links with this organization.

Meanwhile away from performance events, the dancers have been busy welcoming and integrating new company members. It is important that connectingvibes* looks to the future and, although new members will not be travelling to Grenada, they will hopefully have travel projects in the future. Following the recent audition in November seven (7) new members were welcomed into connectingvibes*. We now have a company of fourteen (14) enthusiastic and hardworking dancers.

In terms of rehearsing, the company has been busy working on their established repertory while exploring new ideas for the launch in April 2013. Company member Nafiat Tendu Bukenya has started her first choreographic piece for connectingvibes*, and the dancers have enjoyed exploring many ideas for the piece, which will be completed in the New Year.

Thank you again to all those that have supported us, we will continue to keep you updated as we hopefully get nearer to our target.

Please continue to spread the word!
