New documentary about Newcastle DIY club and community space, Cobalt Studios, released: Watch

A new documentary about the Newcastle DIY club and community space, Cobalt Studios, is now available to watch online.

To The Dancers: Blood, Sweat & Music is directed by Susie Davies, who was behind the 2021 film about the ’90s free party and warehouse scene in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, The Kick, The Snare, The Hat & A Clap.

This new documentary shines a light on the non-profit Cobalt Studios in the northeast of the city, which houses a co-working space as well as a venue and cultural space.

The film explores the “universal power of music and dance to protect and transform communities” and the challenges faced by the founders in light of increasing gentrification and Brexit. 

You can rent Watch To the Dancers here. Watch the trailer below. 

To the Dancers will also premiere at Beeston Film Festival on the 27th April and be screened at a variety of other festivals throughout the year. Check the documentary site for details and updates.
