Shoot Festival

A diverse new festival which platforms the best of Coventry and Warwickshire's up and coming talent

Sneha Singh - Artist Testimonial

BOLLYWOOD DANCER SNEHA SINGH SHARE'S HER THOUGHTS ABOUT SHOOT FESTIVAL, AND WHY SHE WOULD RECOMMEND YOU APPLY TO PERFORM THIS YEAR...

Shoot Festival 2014 was nearly three years ago, but the relationships and collaborations I forged then are still going strong today.

As a dancer and performing artist, I performed with Chris Cook (on sitar) for Shoot 2014 as an experimental collaboration, suggested by Paul and Jen. Since then Chris and I have performed at the Godiva Festival and more recently on the Belgrade Theatre main stage, for the Coventry Belgrade Mela

But more than that, Shoot gave me the opportunity to connect with like minded creative professionals. I was delighted to run a Bollywood workshop for Shoot last year in March 2016 and perform for their Triple Bill, and in June 2016 devised a work in progress piece with Theatre Absolute last year - who took me on as an Associate Artist after Shoot Festival 2014.

I will now be expanding my love of Bollywood dance further in Coventry through weekly workshops at the Belgrade Theatre which commence in April. Click Here for further details.

I am immensely grateful for the journey I have been able to undertake as an artist and Shoot Festival has been an integral part of this journey - I am proud to be a part of the Shoot family! The producers and team and extremely hard working and dedicated and genuinely believe in pushing new talent to the forefront in Coventry, and I would encourage all new artists to apply!
