The performing arts industry has suffered significantly during the Covid-19 lockdown. With physical venues closing, performers have had to adapt their practice in innovative ways including socially distanced and outdoor performances, bespoke PPE such as specially designed face masks and tutus, and live streamed performances which have used interactive platforms in creative ways. Creative Resilience shows a dancer holding a laptop which contains a miniature theatre. Despite the challenges she is facing she is holding a space for us to have a nourishing encounter with the arts.
