A new site specific dance piece SwimMorphosis will be performed in Corby East Midlands International Pool on Saturday, making use of the pool in a completely new way.

Commissioned by Dance 4, Corby Borough Council and The Core at Corby Cube, this performance has been created by Northamptonshire-based choreographer Mickael Marso Riviére.

As Artistic Director of Bboy’s Attic and Company Decalage Northamptonshire based Riviére is a major force in contemporary dance and Bboy worlds.

He currently runs the Moves dance classes at The Core and leads the Corby Young Dancers programme.

He also choreographed a performance for the Queen on her recent visit to Corby.

In SwimMorphosis he brings together professional performers, pool users and members of Corby Young Dancers (The Core’s six-month pre-professional training programme) to create a multi-media dance experience for audiences of all ages.

SwimMorphosis is the centrepiece of Festival of Dance which features performances at the pool throughout the evening by local schools, community groups and local artists and is part of Big Dance 2012, a regional programme from dance development agency, Dance4 and the Big Dance East Midlands Hub Partnership.

SwimMorphosis is at the Corby East Midlands International Pool on Saturday. Festival admission is from 7pm, and the main performance in the pool starts at 8pm.
