As promised, here is a short clip of us performing Public Displays of Affection at the V&A Waterfront as part of the Busker’s Festival and Cape Town Fringe.
We performed across the dock and waterfront complex in various spaces, but found Nobel Square’s setting – complete with mountain backdrop and our Nobel Prize winner’s statues – especially beautiful.
We had an absolutely amazing time performing as part of Cape Town Fringe last week. Despite the threat of some classic wet and windy Cape spring-time weather, we took over the V&A Waterfront, covertly introducing our Public Displays of Affection to often unsuspecting, but incredibly receptive, audiences, and reveling in dancing against the backdrop of Table Mountain.
Here are a couple of photographs captured during our final performance – video to follow soon!
We are thrilled to announce that Public Displays of Affection has been programmed as part of the 2016 Cape Town Fringe Festival!
We will be performing at the V&A Waterfront as part of the very first Busker’s Festival, a celebration of outdoor performance taking place over the four final days of the festival from the 5th to the 8th of October. It is an honour for us to take part in the very first programme of its kind, and can’t wait to bring our glimpses of extraordinary everyday moments to a venue with a backdrop as spectacular as Table Mountain.
We will be working with young Cape Town dancers, and can’t wait to get into the studio!
Public Displays of Affection will be performed at the V&A Waterfront, on the 6th, 7th and 8th of October, come and check us out!
Cape Town Fringe begins on the 22nd of September, and you can browse the entire programme here.
The London Bridge Live Arts Festival was a highlight of our Autumn last year. We loved bringing Public Displays of Affection back out of the theatre and into an outdoor space. Placing dancers amongst people in a public space was an incredibly exciting experience – it felt in many ways that the piece has ‘come home’! Here are some beautiful action shots from the day. We’d love to thank Lydia and her team, as well as photographers Jonathan Vines and Matt Haswell for these images. You can find out more about the festival here, and also watch a short film about festival here.
