Tuesday 10th July, 3.15pm
Battersea Sports Centre, Hope Street, SW11 2DA. Walking directions HERE, or meet at Clapham Junction Station, the Brighton Yard Exit at 2.20pm, to walk with a group to the venue.
A unique event to share initial R&D ideas, movement and audio, of a dance performance on tandem bikes, performed by local dancers and blind and partially sighted participants.
The Tandem Ballet R&D will explore the potential for creating a unique dance performance with blind and partially sighted people, working with dancer front riders, on tandems.
We anticipate sharing two or three sequences which will be devised using contemporary dance / post modern dance techniques as a starting point from which to evolve a unique movement vocabulary and theatrical imagery out of the participants’ experiences of cycling.
A pre-sharing, audio description introduction for blind and partially sighted audience members and audio described performance – please arrive at the venue at 2.45pm.
Access – Fully accessible venue and guide dogs welcome. Limited transport available, please contact 07504 182375 for further information
