Inspired by Rana Begum's Triennial artwork, No.1054 Arpeggio, ConfiCo presents “Take a Dip” - a vibrant and joyful performance celebrating creativity and Folkestone’s colourful sea front. This 10 minute performance is free for all to attend, and inspired by Rana Begum's Triennial artwork, No.1054 Arpeggio. Based at Quarterhouse (Creative Folkestone) ConfiCo is Confidance’s inclusive professional dance company, working collaboratively to create powerful pieces of contemporary dance for festivals, theatres, and schools.
As an antidote to lockdown, ConfiCo have been creating a series of outdoor pop-up performances connecting local public art. Most recently ‘Private View’ inspired by Folkestone’s own Banksy - “Art Buff” - and enduring debates about how, and who, views and engages with art. The series hopes to re-connect communities with the artworks on their doorsteps, inspiring curiosity and creativity in those that stumble across us.
This work has been supported by Creative Folkestone and Arts Council England.
