From 2019 onwards, The Imagination Museum will be two things:
- a site-adaptive performance model continuing to respond to new spaces, artefacts, historical themes, events and ideas. You can find out about specific themed Imagination Museum performances at the top of our What's On page.
- a forum, online and in person, for dance artists and museums to share news, opportunities, case studies and top tips about ways of working with dance and movement in historical sites. You can engage in this collective Imagination Museum space by visiting our Consortium page.
So come and take a look around. You can help us curate an Imagination Museum full of danced responses to museums, galleries and heritage sites - memorable responses that interpret themes, ideas, artefacts, collections and spaces in new and engaging ways.
This is a place for everyone, whether this is your first time, or you’ve been here before.
This is an open space, a place to meet and talk to artists and venues and to be part of a creative process.
This is a place to join in and find out.
The Imagination Museum began in 2013 as a promenade performance piece aiming to use movement and text to bring historical sites and artefacts to life in a new way.
Since then, dance company Made By Katie Green has adapted the work to 31 museums and heritage sites across the UK, where it has been seen by
over 6000 people. It has changed and expanded as it has moved around the country, integrating new elements from the different collections we have encountered and responding to the many different people we have met.
