LIVE MUSIC : Lunatraktors

FAMILY DANCE WORKSHOP
6pm | Free |All ages & abilities welcome
Dancing in Circles is a workshop and performance series suitable for all ages and abilities, led by award-winning ‘broken folk’ duo Lunatraktors. Fresh from the archives of Cecil Sharp House, Lunatraktors invite you to join them in the early stages of their new performance research project Dancing in Circles. Choreographer / percussionist Carli Jefferson and composer / singer Clair Le Couteur want to work with you to create a new folk dance style –– simple, euphoric, passionate, rhythmical.
We will combine simple dance steps with body percussion and harmonic singing, drawing inspiration from the rhythms, tunes and stories of the British folk tradition. Whether you are an experienced singer and dancer bringing your own knowledge, or just taking your first steps and eager to learn something new, you will be equally valued by the group. Clair and Carli are a queer couple and Clair is partially sighted; people of all ages, abilities, body types, genders, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds are welcome in the circle.
