Shaping Reality Through Creative Adventures  

 

Shake it.  Shape it.

Shaper/Caper is a charity all about dancing, prancing, and romancing....well, maybe not the romancing bit, but we hope to make you fall in love with dance. We present the work of multi award winning choreographer, Thomas Small.  Thomas is the first ever BBC Radio 2 Artist in Residence in association with The Space! Woop! He is also a fellow on the coveted Clore Leadership Programme, is former Choreographer in Residence at The Space in Dundee and formerly Artistic Director of the acclaimed Smallpetitklein. Thomas’ critically acclaimed work has been presented all over the shop, from two visits to New York all the way to Sao Paulo in Brazil.  We also do some rather nifty creative learning projects headed up by our fantastic Director of Operations, Yolanda Aguilar, including classes for people of all ages and our super duper project, Well Good, delivered in partnership with NHS Tayside.
