MALE GENERATIONS REQUIRED FOR INNOVATIVE ARTS PROJECT

Llandudno Arts Weekend is asking the public to get involved in an event with renowned choreographer Cecilia MacFarlane. Cecilia, who was co-choreographer on the original cult classic film, The Wicker Man, has teamed up with community dance programme Dawns i Bawb. Together, they are seeking male members of the public to help create a unique dance performance.

The performance will be part of LLAWN03, the third Llandudno Arts Weekend. Cecilia is looking for male participants, either a father and a son, or two people of different generations who have a special relationship. Performers can be any age over four years old. The team also need musicians to accompany the performers.

Cecilia and her performers will be working on the themes of sheds, shelters and dens. Together, the group will be making a transportable structure, which will be moved around Llandudno as the group perform in various locations. The performance is called Dros Dro, which is Welsh for temporary.

Marc Rees, curator of LLAWN03, says, “Cecilia has worked internationally and delivered amazing projects involving people of all ages. She is critically acclaimed among the dance sector for her unique way of working with several generations. We’re looking for performers will a special bond, they could be cousins or someone who is emblematic for them. We’re really looking forward to bringing an intergenerational exploration to the festival.”

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September, 10am-4pm
Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September, 10am-4pm
