Leftcoast (Blackpool) is offering an amazing opportunity to dance and fly in Blackpool Town Centre with Wired Aerial Theatre.
On the 27th and 28th September 2014 Wired Aerial Theatre will be performing their large-scale outdoor show, 'As The World Tipped' Blackpool Cricket Club, West Park Drive, FY3 9EQ and together with Leftcoast have created a fantastic opportunity for local experienced performers to get involved in the weeks leading up to the show.
As part of Leftcoast's audience development activity programme, we are looking to work with some local, experienced dance performers (18yrs +) to create a pop up aerial performance in the town centre of Blackpool.
This would involve learning aerial skills, devising and performing a piece of aerial work with the company, which will encompass and use many of the same range of skills as 'As The World Tipped'. Not only is it an opportunity to come and experience how Wired do what they do, but you will also get to see the town from a whole new angle!
As this will be a quick and intense creative workshop we need participants to be able to take on board the techniques we will be sharing with them and learn and retain choreography as well as to be capable of creating their own moves and grooves. The work will involve a fair bit of grit attitude as harness work is sore and can be exhausting too but the feeling it gives you (for most) over comes all of these side effects.
Performers with experience in Hip hop/break dance/contemporary dance and other aerial skills are welcome to apply.
Dates: Monday to Friday (8th - 12th September) with a performance taking place on Saturday 13th September. Working hours would usually be 9.30am - 4pm.
Please send an email to both Kerenza McClarnan - Creative Engagement Manager - [email protected], and Wendy Hesketh-Ogilvie - Artistic Director (Wired Aerial Theatre) at [email protected] detailing your interest in the project and attach your most up to date CV.
Places are limited due to the site and project so we urge you to contact us as soon as you can. Deadline : Thursday 28th August 5pm

Following a warm up, Bérengère will teach material from her beautiful solo from tauberbach. In this production, director Alain Platel vividly illuminates the true story of a Brazilian schizophrenic who lives on a rubbish dump, combining Bach with curiously tender choreography to extraordinary music from deaf children.
Bérengère teaches beyond the paradigm of good and bad and preconceptions. She will encourage and invite the dancers participating to feel and even redefine the emotions of life.
This will be an opportunity to enter a world of not-knowing and she will work with individuals to examine their meaning and relationship to emotion, and this will be developed throughout the workshop.
There will be opportunities to improvise, share and perform. This workshop is for those who wish to move to another deeper level in their dance and emotional expression.
