10,000 Miles

Directed by Jemma Stein, 10,000 Miles is celebration of connection and creativity and showcases the work of two dance companies in Paisley, Scotland and Melbourne, Australia and their experiences with connecting across the globe.

With support from Jemma Stein, Kyall Shanks (yellowwheel), Joanne McKissack and Aileen Palombo (right2dance) and Anna Kenrick (YDance), the groups came together to collaborate, showcase their dancing and to generate new dance material and spoken word, exploring themes of connection during a time of lockdown.

10,000 Miles was funded by Renfrewshire Council and delivered in partnership with Create Paisley as part of Future Paisley. Future Paisley is radical and wide-ranging programme of events, activities and investments using the town’s unique and internationally significant cultural stories to transform its future.
