The Playground is a creative platform providing a safe space to play with ideas and interact with other artists supported by Rambert Dance.
It is a platform for artists across all artistic disciplines to come together in a safe space to explore, collaborate, network, discuss and play with other artists in a creative environment.
Akiko Ban had been joining this project since 2018 and creating series of drawings in response to the dancer’s movement in real time which captured the energy, time, space and flow of the dance performance.
