Temporary withdrawal from the demands of the routine – dance offers all of us a moment of suspension.  Join DugOut Adult Community Dance at the Pegasus Theatre for an evening of surprises with their new show Suspension, exploring the possibilities found at the very edge, in the instants between rising and falling, between holding tight and letting go.

DugOut is an intergenerational and inclusive contemporary dance group, based in East Oxford, which seeks to promote dance for everyone regardless of age, experience or background.  Started 27 years ago and led by respected Oxford dance artist Cecilia Macfarlane, this inspirational group presents a whole evening of their work once every three years, incorporating seasoned group members and new performers.  The performance will end with an opportunity for everyone to take to the stage, with DJ Euton Daley taking charge of the decks.

Performance:  Friday 9th June 7.30pm

Venue:  Pegasus Theatre, Magdalen Road, Oxford OX4 1RE

Tickets:  £12, £9 concessions.  Book online here or call the Box Office on 01865 812150

Oxford’s popular and long established intergenerational and inclusive adult community dance group DugOut takes the world apart and puts it back together in new and unexpected ways.  Under the artistic direction of Cecilia Macfarlane the group’s latest show D-Constructed presents a series of playful and puzzling pieces exploring how we create meaning for and craft our own identities.  Inspired by Masterchef as much as by post-modernism, the pared back movements are choreographed and re-assembled in new combinations showing the construction of dance as well as the way the dancers and we observers interpret and make sense of others’ stories.  The group’s performance at Pegasus Theatre on 5th June will be followed by a chance for everyone to dance, with a set from DJ El Dorado (aka Euton Daley).

Performance: Thursday 5th June 7.30pm

Pegasus Theatre, Magdalen Street, Oxford OX4 1RE

Tickets:  £7.50, £5 concessions, £4 under 18s

Box Office:  01865 812150 or book online here
