Hub Choreographer for The Tree of Light www.thetreeoflight.org


The Tree of Light was a huge, theatrical production based on original ideas by Stewart Collins, directed by Charlie Morrissey and incorporating music by Orlando Gough.


Staged around a sculptured, 16-metre industrial 'tree' designed by Block 9, the performances use light and dance to tell the story of a mythical tree rediscovered in a future where it is thought that all trees are extinct.


The project was selected by the Legacy Trust to be one of the UK's Community Celebrations for the London 2012 Games, with three performances involving 1200 participants.

Since the start of 2012, ten of the South East’s top choreographers, of which nocturn dance was included, worked tirelessly alongside Artistic Director Charlie Morrissey to teach participating school and community groups the dance piece for summer’s Tree of Light performances.

nocturn dance had the privilege to work with the following schools:

  1. Highdown School and Sixth Form College, Reading

  2. Maiden Erlegh School, Reading

  3. Addington SEN School, Reading

  4. St Andrews Primary School, Oxford
