Made in Cornwall

Made in Cornwall are An elite dance company that rehearse every Friday and recently performed in the Express Yourself Performing Arts Showcase. Exploring current world affairs in Syria, their piece was inspired by Banksy’s art DismalLand (pictured above).

“The dancers are multi-talented; we have actors, singers and gymnasts, all of which are a delight to work with. I would like to praise their interpretation of the piece as their show-stopping performance was incredibly moving; a true reflection of their ongoing commitment, determination and talent.” (Miss Nance)
