 ” Stories bring us together, untold stories keep us apart”

~ Elif Shafak.

Storyland, a community devised work, is a journey through memories and stories of people just like you. From light reflections to personal discoveries, from those in our imagination to those very real, they create a landscape that is almost impossible to unpick. We all seek to keep only those that nurture us but, often those that we want to escape from really connect us with one another.

Storyland is a result of Dance Conversations – a community project run by SE19DanceProject. The project brings residents of Crystal Palace, Penge and Croydon, across generations and with various dance experiences, together. The group is meeting weekly to explore contemporary dance, improvisation, ways of creating choreography and being together in a creative space.

Storyland was devised thanks to support from Upper Norwood Library Hub.
