Door 14 was set at the old gasworks on Foord Road, where you’ll find an incredible art installation created by artist Jyll Bradley for the Folkestone Triennial. We warned you all to bring your wellies for this one but luckily the weather held out!

The green lights really set the scene for something futuristic and out of this world and once the door opened, we were welcomed into an incredible sci-fi dance fantasy; a futuristic performance choreographed by the amazing Michaela Cisarikova. MCDC Dance Company expertly used the whole space to transport us into another world perfectly framed by the green lights of the installation. The colours and the dancers were captivating, and the audience were able to see the performance from every angle as we circled the green lights.

Towards the end of the dance the beautiful performers engaged with the audience and invited individuals to partake in the dance with them. This led to an emotional ending where children and adults of all ages danced with each other creating a wonderful image of togetherness.

This evening we had some lovely volunteers from Demelza Children’s Hospice, more information on what they do can be found below.

A big thank you to Jyll Bradley and Creative Folkestone for allowing us to use such a special space and a huge thank you also to the talented performers of MCDC Dance company. Thanks also as always go to our brilliant volunteers and everyone behind the scenes who helped make this door a success.
