Campaign Story

Choreographer and dancer Briar Adams underwent emergency surgery at the National Hospital of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience in June 2018. On paying a visit to the hospital chapel she discovered Adam Statyris, an off duty doctor, playing an original composition on the chapel piano, and joyfully joined him with with an impromptu dance improvisation. The shared creative moment was captured on video by Adams’ friends who lent their support during this difficult period.

Shortly after her surgery, Adams joined the FreeSpace programme at Studio Wayne McGregor. Inspired by her experience at NHNN, over the last 12 months Adams has created a series of dance performance and film works, in collaboration with Statyris, electronic music producer Stephen Packe, and filmmaker Thom Seaman. These works incorporate several themes, including: an exploration of contemporary and classical dance technique for a disabled or differently abled body; feminism and feminine sexuality; commitment to a philosophy of creative response to adversity; and discovering confidence and performance artistry within an ecosystem lit by ageing, trauma and mature experience.

After 12 months in the FreeSpace programme Adams made the move to produce Hack Ballet’s first London performance platform, bringing together performance artists with a shared passion and continued commitment to making and performing creative work as a means to educate, inspire and progress our diverse community, and protest against the social and political forces of fear which inform our global culture.
