Edgefield Dance Company is a group of trained dancers living and working in Suffolk under the artistic direction of Deborah Watkins Jones. Debbie draws on an interest in spaces, places and relationships as the inspiration for her choreography. She looks within her work at how they affect us and our movement then how we in turn effect change on them.
These workshops are part of HERE, the launch exhibition of Art Station’s new creative and cultural space in the former post office building in Saxmundham, Suffolk.
