Cazna talks about the residency:
The LWDance Hub Residency allowed me and my dancers - Cayleigh Davies, Tina Ebenreuter, Peter Vayne and Rita Bush - to focus on playing, exploring and extending on material as well as ideas and thoughts from the previous development of 'Colourfeel'. During this residency I was able to explore with different mediums to create tasks, which is still evolving to a new level. The week has also giving me an opportunity to learn about myself as a director/choreographer of 'Colourfeel' and ﬁnd different approaches to build on my artistic practise. I take away from my week as artist in residence new ideas and thoughts which will assist me in continuing to explore my theme and develop 'Colourfeel' into a full length contemporary work in the near future.
