Quicksilver in Glasgow for Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival
I travelled up to Glasgow with twelve members of Quicksilver, Rambert’s youth dance company, to take part in the Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival (CYDF).
I’m delighted that the group was selected to take part in the festival and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The opportunity for Quicksilver to perform at CYDF was a great privilege and was a fantastic chance for our dancers to work with other groups from all over the world.
Quicksilver performed The Disappearance of Elsie May at the Tramway Theatre. Choreographed by myself, The Disappearance of Elsie May was first performed as part of ReFresh in 2013, at The Place, London.
Laura Harvey, Quicksilver’s Artistic Director
CYDF was organised by YDance, the national dance organisation for young people in Scotland, and brought together young dancers from all over the world in a 3-day festival, which included workshops and performances.
