This is a project about home, family, and the resilience of the human spirit.
Chris Martin and Larkin Poynton met in 2004, as two adolescent young punks who just loved to dance. Over the years, they boogied, made dance short films, put on community shows, taught, and hosted workshops together. Today, both Chris and Larkin have created successful careers as choreographers, received millions of views, and continued to push the envelope with their artistry. They dream of bringing sustainability and artistic integrity to the creative world by virtue of a dance company. In order to achieve this, Larkin and Chris believe that they must create meaningful and innovative work that transcends the stage. This idea inspired them to imagine Project Home, a dance project that combines original music, narrative storytelling, in a dramatic location.
They sought out directing duo Andrew Michael Ellis and Ben Stamper for their unique sensitivity to movement, and composer Jon Seale for his vision to bring music production out of the studio and into the real world. With Andrew directing visual scenes, and Jon composing an emotional score, Larkin and Chris will conduct a group of talented dancers into a symphony of soul.
Not belonging to any singular director, however, this project has collaboration built deep within its bones. Together, these creators share a unified vision - a story of home, of family, and the resilience of the human spirit.
