Members spent the week working with schools and dance groups in the lead-up to their performance of I Wish Her Well at Shilbottle Community Hall.

Oslo-based Panta Rei is one of Norway’s premier dance companies, known for its fast-paced, colourful dance theatre. In the lead-up to the show, the company was in residence for a week of workshops with Year 3 and 4 pupils from Shilbottle and Warkworth primary schools.
