Fallen Angels started working in Wigan and Leigh in 2012. Supporting people in recovery from addiction and mental health adversity, we work in partnership and deliver projects from the Turnpike (link https://www.theturnpike.org.uk/), a gallery/arts centre based above the library in the heart of Leigh.
Our Leigh group is currently meeting online via our C19 project
Recent project: Epic Luxe
Artist Frances Disley (link Frances Disley to http://francesdisley.com/) has been working with our Leigh participants to enhance the experience of the participants in their weekly sessions at The Turnpike.
Using colour, pattern, props and play, the artist has been co-choreographing new work with the group around their experience of addiction recovery.
After completing phase 1 of the collaboration prior to lockdown, the project was re-activated online with dancers engaging from their own homes. We are now nearing completion back in The Turnpike’s studio, with all artists adopting new safety measures. The work has taken an interesting shift along its timeline, becoming responsive to social distancing measures, physical connection and the sharing of props and physical and psychological support structures.
Here is the full version of the resulting performance: Epic Luxe
We welcome adults in Wigan and Leigh area who are in recovery to join our next project.
