Inspiration In Motion promotes dance and the performing arts.
We have a particular focus on commissioning and supporting new dance works, but also look for opportunities to broaden the audiences for dance and support education and training.
Past Projects we have supported include:
One month after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, Inspiration In Motion was proud to produce a gala, Dance for Ukraine, at the London Coliseum theatre. The aim was to help those in desperate need following the onset of war, whilst also delivering our goal of promoting dance and the performance arts.
Sliver of Sky was created by Ludovic Ondiviela and performed in association with Amnesty International on 24 April 2016 at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells.
Albert Woodfox was held in solitary confinement in the US for 43 years until his release in 2014. From his cramped prison cell there was a slit of a window from which he could see, in his words, a “sliver of sky”.
Choreography by Ludovic Ondiviela
Raymond Chai was supported in developing 'Unbroken Silence' for performance at the Your Move Dance Festival in New Jersey, USA.
Support was given to a trip by Andrew McNicol to New York, USA, where Andrew had been commissioned to create new choreography in a workshop with the New York Choreographic Institute. The support resulted in commissioning of further work by a major US promoter and potential for other works with other US institutions.
Francisco Rojas is an independent choreographer working in Mexico City. Inspiration In Motion arranged the opportunity for him to shadow the work of two established choreographers, Russell Maliphant and Wayne McGregor for two weeks in October / November 2016. As a result of the experience Francisco embarked on development of new choreography on his return to Mexico City.
The charity supported the creation and production of a new ballet, 'Satori', in November 2017. The ballet was created by Sergei Polunin and performed within a programme of works at the London Coliseum over 7 performances in December 2017. Within that programme Inspiration In Motion also supported a children's matinee performance with a rather different programme designed to inspire a younger audience.
