2018 Fully Grounded

Hi I’m Molly Adamson and this is a blog post about my experiences with Fertile Ground.
I am working with Dora for a couple of days while I am on placement at Dance City from 30th June to 6th July in Newcastle. I started working with Dora on Tuesday 1st July. The first time I met Dora, she gave me an introduction to her company Fertile Ground and showed me their past performances and I did a little research of my own to widen my knowledge of the company.
Last year they performed ‘The Unfolding Sky: Turner in the Sky’,a vibrant reimagining of the extraordinary deceptions of the Northumberland countryside, captured on canvas by the great English landscape painter JMW Turner. It is performed by 3 dancers and it captures all that is best and most exciting in the North East landscape.  The Unfolding Sky: Turner in the North
Learning about the Fertile Ground has given me an edge about how expressive and unique contemporary dance is. Watching the videos of Fertile Ground’s previous performances has shown me how you can use contemporary dance to display different emotions through dance.
While on my placement at Dance City I’ve seen the diverse range of dancing skill through professionals and beginners. On Monday morning when I arrived I observed a professional ballet class, which showed me the level and standard that professionals work at and being a ballet dancer myself helped me gain experience of the class and how I could incorporate their style into my own dancing.
I have been invited by Dora to go and watch a performance by Dansformation called ‘Northumbriana’ at Alnmouth, Hindmarsh Hall on Wednesday 2nd July. I know that this performance shows the past, present and future of traditional combined with contemporary dance and I am really looking forward to watching the performance. Their last show is at The Maltings, Berwick on Saturday! Northumbriana at The Maltings
Fertile Ground is in residence at The Maltings, Berwick for a whole week in February 2015, so keep checking the website for further information!

  3. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.. ebdeddkcfcgd

    1. Hi there, thank you for the kind feedback. I’m not the writer of the article, but I’m the web developer helping Fertile Ground to improve their website. The website doesn’t use a theme anymore and all of the changes are custom and done by myself so I’m delighted that you’re pleased with it.
