For the Fallen – commemorative dance for Campbell Park

These images show early development of For the Fallen, a commemorative dance piece that will take place at Campbell Park on 5th July.  Inspired by WW1, the conflict and the stories or war, this dance will involve over 100 performers and will feature 500 banners created by the people of Milton Keynes.  Choreographed by Helen Parlor, Effie McGuire-Ward and Chris Bradley this large-scale dance will be a beautiful act of commemoration.

Helen, Chris and Effie are currently looking for dance groups that are interested in being involved in this project – young or old, amateur or professional they want to hear from you.  More information can be found here: Dance Great War MK Flyer.

The banners that will feature in For The Fallen are being created in artist-led workshops with experienced textile artist, Vinny Stapley.  There are plenty of opportunities to take part in public workshops – see our events page, or you can use our template to create and donate a poppy to the project, more info here.
