The Quiet Man in FORT takes a stand against isolation, power, responsibility and the crowd.
Created with 84 lads from schools in Sandwell, FORT was Directed and Choreographed by Oliver Scott of Mercurial Dance, and created with Filmmaker Jay Langdell and Composer Andrew Kristy. It was filmed on location at Fort Dunlop, West Midlands.
The aim of Warwick Arts Centre’s Boys Dancing project with is to prove to boys that dance is exciting, engaging, fun and challenging. We want to show that dance is a great mix of spontaneous physical and mental activity – it requires physical strength like in sport and it provides a great workout for the mind.
