Family Weekend: Spill - a playground of dance
Shaun Parker (Australia)
WORLD PREMIERE PERFORMANCES!
Directed by Australian choreographer Shaun Parker
Original music score composed by Nick Wales
Spill is a brand new 30-minute outdoor production using existing children’s playground equipment as the set and taking dance into the heart of communities as it tours the West Midlands.
Highly playful and physical, and at times teasingly comical – this is a cheeky dance celebration of the child within. Combining quirky, dynamic dance with high energy street gymnastics, the dancers in this performance blaze a colourful trail across the structures and landscapes of the playground. Each performance will be unique, as the show scrambles around, over, under and through swings, slides and roundabouts. Kids will love it, grown-ups will love it too!
Spill is part of the IDFB 2012 Family weekend
If you don’t get the chance to see Spill as part as IDFB, you may still be able to catch it elsewhere on its West Midlands tour.
This project is part of the Outdoor Dance Programme, led by DanceXchange in partnership with Dancefest, Dancescape and Dudley Performing Arts. This programme has been funded by Arts Council England with support from Legacy Trust UK and Advantage West Midlands as part of the Dancing for the Games programme, which is part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
Suggested age guidance: suitable for all ages
Running time: 30 minutes
