Co-Mission: Choices & Consequences

Co –Mission: Choices & Consequences is an inclusive residency and performance concept, which explores the moral dilemmas that face us all, and the consequences of making choices and taking chances. The project features choreography by Michael Joseph and an original score by Steve Marshall.

A pilot was run in London in 2015, in partnership with The Albany,The Deptford Lounge,  IRIE! Dance Theatre, Greenwich Dance and Moonshot Studios. Through Co-Mission: Choices & Consequences we were able to support the development of a new emerging disabled choreographer, Laura Dajao, and a company of dancers, with and without disabilities, who worked through contemporary, hip-hop and martial arts styles to create an accessible and entertaining performance.

Louise Katerega provided advice and mentoring throughout the nine week residency, and the dancers were Housni Omer, Hannah Meraki, Ash Goosey, Louise Dickson and Laura Dajao. A documentary film by Ros Cheshire/Vita Films is available to view at State of Emergency’s Vimeo channel.
