Jigsaw Dance Workshop Project
In 2011-12, Jigsaw: Salisbury Youth Dance Company worked with three inspirational professional dance companies all practicing in very different dance styles.
This short documentary, filmed by fellow Salisbury Arts Centre youth group Filmmakers Anonymous, details the journey of this project.

Operation Nightingale: Time Warriors
Salisbury Arts Centre teamed up with Wessex Archaeology and the army for a special filmmaking project that documented a significant archaeological dig on Salisbury Plain over the summer of 2012.
Young people from Salisbury and the surrounding area were given professional training to become a documentary film crew recording the entire process of the excavations and interviewing the key people involved.
The project, nicknamed 'Project Florence' to match up with the army's excavation codename of 'Operation Nightingale', was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and resulted in this 25 minute film.
Mark Bruce Company presents Made in Heaven at Salisbury Arts Centre
Thursday 21 June, 8pm
A savagely beautiful dance theatre production from the company behind the critically acclaimed Love and War and Sea of Bones.
Merging ancient themes and contemporary life, Mark Bruce creates a surreal world where a prairie girl dreams of other lives and a chain-gang dances on the edge of an inferno.
With music ranging from Debussy and Leadbelly to Queens of the Stone Age, this dark and sometimes comic piece interrogates the very idea of heaven.
The performance will be accompanied by a post-show chat with Arts Centre staff and members of the company, giving you the chance to find out more about the company and the process behind their work.
