Join us during our R&D stage of Bridge, Imagineer’s latest large-scale commission
Bridge is an ambitious arts and engineering project that will lead to the creation of an iconic bridge structure for public spaces and a programme of performances and community collaborations. Imagineer is collaborating with exceptional artists and civil engineers Arup on the realisation of Bridge, which is also supported by Arts Council England through its Ambition for Excellence programme.
Bridge is led by artistic director Orit Azaz, designer Dan Potra and choreographer Corey Baker and developed in partnership with engineers from Arup. Over three days, the creative team share emerging ideas through action research, creative conversations, performance-based activities and experiments, story gathering and virtual reality presentations.
Come and join our creative research and development process during the Festival of Imagineers.
“You haven’t truly engaged in reconciliation until your own community think you have betrayed them” The Very Reverend John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry
