About the Event
Exciting, independent dance artists have collaborated to create Choreography that pulses with the energy of Midsummer!
Midsummer Dance is an evening of dance, spoken word and creativity. A collection of solo and group performances, curated by Dance Centred and set on the unique moorland stage of Sterts Theatre. Midsummer has its ancient traditions firmly rooted on Bodmin Moor and each dance artist brings their own contemporary interpretation.
By Gocha Mendible - inspired by the indigenous Latin America culture of summer solstice, a transitional time from sun to drought to rain and the effects on the individual and collective.
Performer: Lois Taylor
By Lois Taylor in collaboration with the dancers – a response to the buzz from earth to sky of midsummer.
Song of the Golden Dragon
By Sapphire Sumpter - a moment of breaking free from our old selves, shedding the winter skin we have outgrown, to burst out into the unknown.
By Lois Taylor in collaboration with the dancers – Bold, colourful, sassy like the peak of summer.
Performers: Gocha (Maria) Mendible, Sally Robbins, Sam Lawrence, Huck New, George Donaghy, Lois Taylor, Sapphire Sumpter.
We are delighted that Shallal Dance Theatre and artists, Kane John Mills, Aide Dove and George Donaghy will also bring their own response to Midsummer.
Co-Director Lois Taylor says “ after a long 2 years we are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with other artists and share our work with a live audience. ”
Sterts is a fabulous 400 seat Amphitheatre nestled on the side of Bodmin moor and protected by a large canopy for all weather. We invite you to feast with us, by bringing your Midsummer picnic, or purchasing refreshments on site to celebrate the Summer Solstice..
