Sanchez & Rigg Presents
Blurring the lines between Musician and Dancer.
Project Unspoken explores the language of music & dance, opening up the age-old, primal connection that exists between these forms of expression. The lines between Musician and Dancer become blurred as the audience is invited on a journey with the artists.
Weaving energies together, the connection between art disciplines, cultures, and non-verbal and verbal language, creates a new story to tell. Working with an ever-evolving international cast, Leticia Sanchez & Anders Rigg create a melting pot of classical and contemporary artforms, with influences including Spanish Flamenco, percussion, electronica, Celtic and Afro-Cuban dance.
Project Unspoken is being developed into a touring performance with support from Creative Scotland.

Phase 1: In the Studio (2021)
Exchange, process and decisions...
The studio is the beginning and heart of the process, providing a stage for the creative energies to be let loose.
Hours of talking and days of playing, moving and discovering. Each step bringing us closer to the goal of sharing and developing our new language for creation and performance.
Phase 2: Collaborations (2022)
Combining music and dance, Unspoken finds different ways of communication between art disciplines.
We had special guest artists Rachel Newton (Scottish musician) and Yadira Rodriguez (Spanish dancer) in the studio with us creating really different pieces using our methodology.
Phase 3: Evolving Influences (2023)
With the support of the Creative Scotland Open Fund, we invite more international guest artists and into our process with the intention of developing Project Unspoken into a live performance with the help of a production team.
In our workshops we share our methodology for connecting music and dance with dozens more artists.
Sharing our methodology for connecting the languages of music and dance.
In the Project Unspoken workshop we share the methodology we have developed for creating music and dance; in the same space, at the same time.
Involving anywhere between 4 and 20 participants - ideally from a background in music, dance or both - we create an open space where participants can create and exchange ideas with instruments, props, prompts and play. Workshops are a minimum of 3 hours long, but can extend to a full day or multiple days depending on how in-depth an organisation or participants would like to go.
Those with a background in an artform such as music, dance, theatre or spoken word will get the most from the Project Unspoken workshop, but it is open to all levels of experience. We encourage participants from all cultural backgrounds to take part. The workshop aims to reflect the project, with as even a mix of music and dance as possible.
