Why do this work?
Tonic first ran Advance in 2014. You can read why the programme was created here. Following the success of the 2014 programme, several dance, opera, and theatre organisations expressed a desire to participate in the process too. There was clear scope for the work to continue.
In this video, Tonic’s Director Lucy Kerbel discusses how the work conducted by the 2016 cohort built on that done in the 2014 pilot with Royal Central School of Speech and Drama’s Prof. Gilli Bush-Bailey.
