Without Walls Weekend
Two days of completely free arts in the park.
Saturday 13 May 12 – 5pm Easthill Park, Easthill Way, Portslade BN41 2FA
Sunday 14th May, 12 – 5pm East Brighton Park, Wilson Avenue, Brighton, BN2 5TS
Brighton Festival is offering Free Family Fun this weekend as it presents a host of inventive outdoor performances across two afternoons.
Highly-skilled performers will transform two of Brighton’s beautiful parks – Easthill Park and East Brighton Park – into open-air theatrical bonanzas with six brand-new shows including capoeira, disability-defying dance, hip hop, puppetry, seriously silly theatre, tightrope walking and rock ‘n’ roll juggling.
Spymonkey’s Petra Massey will be your host for the day, and Sun 14 May in East Brighton Park, BSL interpreters Jill Blackadder and Marco Nardi will also be on hand.
Look out for the following live acts to keep you entertained:
Bingo Lingo – Get your eyes down for this cheeky reinvention of a great British tradition with Beryl and Cyril who hope to make Bingo an official Paralympic sport.
Willy and Wally – Despite drowning in plastic rubbish, street artists Cocoloco present an environmental message as they try to keep their sense of humour.
Witness This – This powerful and personal piece of dance theatre by Company Chameleon’s tells the story of choreographer Kevin Edward Turner following his journey with bipolar.
Corazón a Corazón – Fusing contemporary dance with British Sign Language, Deaf Men Dancing displays their unique and compelling dance style.
Theatre for One – With a performer from Horse + Bamboo Theatre in association with Lempen Puppet Theatre interact on a one-to-one basis and take a look inside a lion’s mouth, a space helmet or even a man’s pregnant belly.
Orbis -With a 360° surround sound score this duet from Humanhood explores the relationship between the moon and humankind.
To Me, To You – By the critically acclaimed Wired Aerial Theatre this playful new aerial dance show about finding balance is performed both on the ground and in the air.
There will be a dazzling dance-off with the Ragroof Players including a cheeky Charleston and more modern grooves.
