Commissioned by Creative Youth Network
Rooted is a contemporary dance theatre production packed with emotive imagery and rich textured movement, bringing together unheard stories from those living in isolation.
Performed by passionate young dancers using visceral group choreography, it examines what it means to feel alone.
Commissioned by Creative Youth Network, Rooted is directed and choreographed by emerging artist Deepraj Singh. Since graduating from London Contemporary Dance School in 2015, Deepraj has choreographed, taught, and performed in and around Bristol, as well as toured internationally with Akademi’s ‘The Troth’ (choreographed by Gary Clarke).
This commissioned piece explores the duality of isolation and assimilation through contemporary dance theatre. The loneliness that can emerge when confronted by something new and can even reach you within your community.
