Here you can read about the three phases of Generate project which we have undertaken so far.
In 2007, Danceworks co-produced Mischief, a new work by Theatre-Rites and choreographer Arthur Pita, as a member of the Dance Touring Partnership and in collaboration with Sadler's Wells. Over 5 weeks in Autumn 2007 school children across South Yorkshire took part in creative sessions which included attending performances of Mischief at the Lyceum Theatre. Click here to read more.
In 2008 Danceworks opened its season in a public space, a non-traditional theatre environment, Devonshire Green, in the heart of Sheffield City Centre to launch Generate 2008 as well as to celebrate the launch of the Cultural Olympiad. Again, school children across South Yorkshire took part in very special creative workshops in schools over four weeks as well as attending a performance of Beau Geste's Transports Exceptionnels.

In 2010 Danceworks presented Toilet Tango in an empty window space provided by CTP, St Paul's - Sheffield City Centre - 14th and 15th May 2010. This FREE Danceworks event was produced and presented in partnership with Sheffield City Council, supported in kind by Sheffield Theatres and Bathstore who provided the bathroom suite with additional support from Art in Empty Spaces and Esmee Fairbairn.
Again, 7 groups across 5 primary schools across South Yorkshire undertook creative sessions in schools including attending a performance of Toilet Tango. As well as the performance the children got the chance to have a backstage tour of the Crucible Theatre and take part in a special mass tango event. Click here to read more.
