Bite My Skype works with disadvantaged, disenfranchised children in Europe. Professional dancers, musicians and actors from five EU nations share skills in ways of working with children with learning disabilities, children in hospital and Roma children.

Activities include:

  • Artist Laboratories exploring HipHop, Tango, Tarantella & other street dance forms
  • Performance techniques that do not rely on language
  • Working with people who don’t normally have access to arts
  • One large scale new work
  • New dance theatre with live music, interactive participation with children
  • Contemporary tango duets with live music
  • Body Percussion performance
  • Interactive dance with people with learning disabilities, live music
  • Interactive dance with children in hospital, live music by artists 

The project will build bridges across language, culture and age, promoting a climate of tolerance, respect, creativity & optimism among future EU generations.
