HUDDERSFIELD-based Chol Theatre is set to help get bodies moving in an ambitious series of projects linking art and sport.
The group has been selected for the £855,000 imove scheme in the run up to London 2012.
Inspired by the forthcoming Olympics, the imove programme aims to transform the relationship between people in Yorkshire and their moving bodies through crossovers between culture, sport and physical education.
The new projects will take place across Yorkshire over the next three years.
Chol Theatre will work with lead partner Sheffield Hallam University to challenge perceptions of disability in sport at all levels in Extraordinary Moves.
The specialised movement capture facilities at the university and will be used in a dance and sport programme looking at how our bodies achieve physical and creative expression in everyday life.
Dr David James of Sheffield Hallam University, said: “Our project represents a truly innovative partnership between the arts, sport and science and will deliver a host of different activities that challenge perceptions of disability.”
