Dance in Libraries is a two-year festival placing choreographers as artists in residence in the libraries of Richmond upon Thames. The project creates a dialogue between the library users, the people who work there and the resident artist in order to research reading habits, personal stories and relationships to the space. Each finished performance is a unique response the library environment and those who inhabit it.
Dance in Libraries is run in partnership by Richmond Council Libraries and Arts Services.
