VDT is off to The Point in Eastleigh, Hampshire for a month, from 11 July 2011, to develop initial ideas for a new middle scale production for 2012 provisionally titled 'Motherland'. The work looks at the myth of having it all.
I have invited a fantastic group of artists to join in this creative process -

Motherland aims to be an inter-generational work involving children, young people, mid-career and mature performers. The work will be devised through a series of interventions, critical debates and residencies in venues across the UK and is commissioned by The Dome Brighton, Yorkshire Dance, South East Dance, Newbury Corn Exchange, Peak Performances at Montclair State University and The Point in Eastleigh. VDT is currently regularly funded by Arts Council England and Grants for the Arts. From 2012 we will be part of the National Portfolio of organisations regularly funded by ACE.
