Event description

Description

Home at The Rising Sun is a promenade performance that invites audience members on an immersive and interactive journey to reimagine the arts centre as a place of home. On 30th April 2017, Reside Dance will perform alongside The Sun Poets group and up to 30 participants from the local community. Paying homage to the art centre’s unique history, the piece facilitates new creative patterns of use through dance, poetry, music, video projection and sculpture.

The town's residents have contributed to the making of the performance by answering a Facebook poll on where and what is home for them. The top 6 answers have been used to help shape the performance so that The Rising Sun Arts Centre can become a place of familiarity, togetherness and comfort.

To be further involved in the making of Home at The Rising Sun, can you give us a like on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Reside Dance? We'll be updating our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and sharing how your contributions are helping us shape a performance just for you, the local community.

Home at The Rising Sun is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
