A dance and film performance

Using dance, film and text, Nurture reflects on the transition of a building from hospital to university; two institutions that each in their own way provide care, education and transformation.

In 2004 Angel Dance Co Lab worked with Omni Productions in the empty hospital to make a film ‘Infirmary.’ Nurture incorporates elements from this, together with new film and performance to create an event that gives the audience opportunity to explore the building and capture a little of its past as well as its future.

Nurture was part of The University of Worcester’s reVise Arts commissioning programme linked to the development, opening, and celebration of the new City Campus.
