Spode works

re:claim is a dance, music and visual media project based at the Spode factory in the heart of Stoke Town. The artists of ‘re:stoke’ will be conducting a series of workshops in dance, movement, photography, drawing, animation and music across Stoke Town and in the Old Spode Factory to create a promenade performance event that will take place in the factory, May 2011.
The factory, which opened in 1767, helped bring about an industry which granted the potteries a heritage to be celebrated. Since the recent closure of the factory, its buildings and courtyard are left unused. Stoke-on-Trent City Council has exciting plans for the redundant Spode site, which will be a cornerstone in the regeneration of the Town.
re:claim will explore the secrets and memories of a place, the rise and fall of an industry and the changing face of a town. Drawing inspiration from the architecture and history of the factory and the people who reside nearby, the project aims to reclaim the aspirations and identity of Stoke Town.
