Degree-level Theatre Arts student Sabrina McIntosh choreographed a special performance in memory of her friend Danielle Beccan, who was sadly killed in 2004.

This Octo­ber will mark the 15th anniver­sary since Danielle, who was just 14 when she became the vic­tim of a dri­ve-by shoot­ing on her way home from Goose Fair.

Sab­ri­na, 28, is com­ing to the end of the BA (Hons) Top-up Degree in The­atre Arts at Not­ting­ham Col­lege. She used her final major project to cre­ate a per­for­mance to hon­our her friend, who she said loved to dance.

The memo­r­i­al event was held at Not­ting­ham College’s Claren­don Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre and includ­ed an audi­ence of friends and fam­i­ly, as well as mem­bers of the pub­lic. Sab­ri­na chore­o­graphed, designed the set, planned the music, and mar­ket­ed the whole event her­self as part of her course.

The per­for­mance showed good against evil’ and includ­ed a mocked 999 call por­tray­ing what hap­pened on the night Danielle was killed. 

Sab­ri­na worked extreme­ly hard on her final piece and it real­ly showed. For a long time she has want­ed to tell the sto­ry of her friend through dance and I think she did that beautifully. 

 — Dance Lec­tur­er Nico­la Burt

Dancers who per­formed the piece were: Sophie Wil­son, Ali Wright, Ani­ta Har­vey, Malachi Minto, Bethany Teague, Shan­non Moul­son, Sophie Mum­by, and Chris Brayford.
