    Dear Lea, do you work with writers for performance as well? I wonder If your approaches and tools for devising performances could be adapted and converted into writing strategies? I look forward to hearing from you.

    Have just read about your research performance with LCD graduates on Saturday Oct 10th.
    Would love to come and see this. Is that possible? If so, where is it on?

  3. Absolutely loved the BBC documentary!! Have recently moved to London wasn’t aware of your work Lea. It’s right up my alley! Please I would love to be updated with new work and even if you ever have open auditions where you require a mature woman who is trained in classical, contemporary dance as well as theatre please let me know.

    I saw Out on the windy beach at Greenwich naval college in 1998 and loved it. There was a beautiful folk song about a wreck that the dancers performed to, but I can’t remember what the title was and would love to know.

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you…I saw Hand in Glove at the V&A and it was bloody bloody fantastic! I have contacted the LCSD with a view to obtaining at least a couple of DVDs of the performance but have heard nothing since. I am anxious not to miss out! Are you able to advise if there will be a DVD of this magnificent performance?

    Good afternoon,

    I am bringing a group of students to see your show at the Jersey Opera House next week. I was wandering if you are holding workshops at all whilst you are here?

    Thank you

    Dear Lea, Anne & I watched Elvis Legs (Quarantine Mix) at the premier and on a couple of occasions at one of the weekend streaming sessions. We are Anders’s parents so probably biased. Nevertheless we have now seen it three times and it is both a distilation of the spirit of coronavirus times and a wonderful collaboration to make a joyful and playful dance piece executed with great verve and commitment. This is a piece created for the screen and we wondered if there are any plans to make it available again either streamed or downloadable. We would be happy to to pay for this. Maybe dance should always be a transitory phenomenon but it is not ephemeral. We would be delighted to be able to be delighted by it again! P.S. thank you for the photos and cards you sent to us.

    Hi Lea,
    Whilst sorting through my belongings I have come across a very precious video of cross channel which was bought for me for my birthday many years ago as I absolutely loved it.
    Sadly I do not have a video recorder to view it anymore but wanted to donate it to an archive where it may be looked after and possibly viewed and valued. Do you know where I can send it please? It is is tip top condition. The video case says it is for educational purposes only which made me feel v special to get my hands on it.
    Hope you can help.
    All the best,

    Hi I love all of your works however I can not access them anywhere to share with my students who are completing a dance for camera module. I would love it if you could let me know where I could access pieces such as Car and Flesh and Blood.

    Thank you

      Hi Gemma
      Thank you for your message.
      At the moment I am trying to get funding to make all my work accessible online.In the meantime I may have dvd’s of those works. I don’t know if you could use them? Let me know.
      Thank you and best wishes

  11. Dear Lea, I took a young child to see Zoetrope yesterday. I had no idea what I was about to encounter ā€“ thanks SO much to you and your team for pouring your heart, soul and imagination into the production. I will savour those 50 minutes for some time, I feel exhilarated! Stunningly cohesive choreography, costume, lighting and sound. The show was utterly wonderful, witty, funny, vividly beautiful. Iā€™m a visual artist and big fan of Bauhaus and Oscar Schlemmer ā€“ I suspect you might be too. Thankyou again ā€“ my experience of the show goes far beyond entertainment, I feel nourished.

      Dear Heather
      Thank you for your lovely, thoughtful message. I am so happy that you “got” what we were doing in Zoetrope and appreciated it. I shared your words with Simon, Marty and Steve (designer, composer, lighting designer) and they were delighted. I also have to say that you are 100% correct- Schlemmer is a big favourite! We are really pleased with Zoetrope and hope that NDCW get to tour it in the future. Thanks again, –
