Could you be part of SO Festival 2013?

SO Festival is offering Louth and Mablethorpe’s amateur performers the chance to appear alongside some of the best dance companies in the country.

The two towns will again play a major part in the festival, which runs from June 28 to July 7

As part of the festival’s dance programme, a showcase of up and coming national outdoor arts productions from the Without Walls touring programme will hit the streets of East Lindsey to entertain crowds on July 6.

Acts scheduled to perform include C-12 Dance Theatre’s Trolleys, Mimbre’s Falling Up, Bad Taste Cru’s, Tribal Assembly and Upswing’s Red Shoes.

C-12 Dance Theatre’s Trolleys’ is a part dance, part ballet, part outdoor spectacle while Mimbre’s Falling Up is a physical tale of four strong women examining what makes each woman who they are, told through solo performances and a beautiful finale.

Bad Taste Cru’s Tribal Assembly is a fusion of break dancing, physical theatre, and body contact and Upswing’s Red Shoes is a blend of circus and dance atop Chinese poles.

In addition to national outdoor dance acts, SO Festival, which is funded by Arts Council England, wants to feature talented Lincolnshire dancers of all ages, styles, and experiences.

SO Festival is calling for expressions of interest from professional schools, community groups and school companies across Lincolnshire until 6 April and a full schedule of acts will be released shortly after.

Katie Louise Holden, Cultural Assistant for East Lindsey District Council, commented: “We are thrilled to showcase Lincolnshire’s top dance talent at this year’s SO Festival.

“Performing in front of our large audiences during one of the UK’s top arts festivals is a fantastic opportunity, and we look forward to offering a little something for everyone during our talent-filled dance programme.”
