Diciembre Dance Group was founded in 2008 by Lucía Piquero to bring together artists from different backgrounds and disciplines with the aim of using dance as a tool for expression. Musician and composer Alberto García has been a close collaborator from the beginning of the project. Since then, DDG has grown to include co-directors Sara Accettura and Lisa Maiello, and a range of dancers.
Choreographies by Lucía Piquero have been performed in different festivals around the UK and in Spain. DDG has also started to present work from other choreographers, the latest being by co-director Sara Accettura and Andrea Santato.
Kensington Gardens is the place where children get lost, or where they get found; where they find their way to Neverland, or start their trip to adulthood. It doesn't matter how much you play, childhood is not the happy, light experience we see, but also a place with dark and scary passages into the unknown.
