OUR STORY SO FAR
Look Kloser has grown over two years. In that time there has been an exhibition at Sun Pier House in Chatham, a short film screened as part of a local film festival and a residency with Kent Dance Network. Take a look at the various events and projects that we have been part of. Look Kloser continuously strives to create and seek opportunities to perform and exhibit.
EVERY DAY PEOPLE ARE SUPERHEROES TOO
The performing arts group started up early 2014 and set out to create a short film.
A quirky story created by chance; intertwined with superheroes based on the individual strengths within the group. Everyone created their own character and all decisions were made as a group.
October 2014-Jan 2015
"Winter:___" was an exploration of the coldest time of year. This was a collaboration with Sun Pier House in Chatham and three other professional artists. One day a week we explored winter through movement, art and photography. At the end there was an exhibition and dance performance in the gallery space at Sun Pier House. This project was supported with funding from Ideas Test.
CULTURE AND TOURISM AWARD
Look Kloser received a culture and tourism award from Medway Council in the Performing Arts category.
WOODLANDS ARTS CENTRE RESIDENCY
Look Kloser became resident at Woodlands Arts Centre and launched our art studio. The studio has given artists more opportunities to explore their individual talents and interests. Seasonal short courses continue to be popular.
Look Kloser worked collaborative with Woodlands Arts Centre and The Challenging Behaviour Foundation to put on a family friendly arts festival. The Performing Arts group had a film screening as well as live performances during the day. We were also part of the Big Dance; a global dance event.
SUMMER ARTS CAMP 2016
8 week arts camp with opportunities to explore dance, art and relaxation.
The Performing Arts group that gather on Wednesday mornings put on their first live show! As well as their take on The Lion King, they also performed some of their favourite dances from various films.
Many festive creations were made in the Look Kloser art studio this year. The favourite being "Fred".
KENT DANCE NETWORK-RESIDENCY AT THE BEANEY
