To end the half term break on a high note Dancin’ Oxford presents a free aerial dance performance by the amazing French aerial dance company Compagnie Retouramont, returning to Oxford to perform Gravitational Waves in the atmospheric environment of Oxford Castle Quarter on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th May.  Compagnie Retouramont transforms outdoor spaces with a thrilling combination of video projection, sound and aerial dance.  A sculptural framework attached to the facade of a building provides the dancers with a unique performance space to explore the interaction between architecture, sound, projected images and movement. Dancers animate the space in multiple dimensions where the movement is not only seen but heard as the sculpture transposes their every move into sound, and creates a virtual gravity.
Probably the best spectacle in Oxford this summer – don’t miss it!

Performances:  Friday 29th and Saturday 30th May, 9.30pm

Venue:  Oxford Castle Quarter

Following on from the fantastic success of last year’s event, Dancin’ Oxford will once again take over the grounds of one of Oxford’s oldest sites this summer and bring it alive with dance and music. A large cast of professional and community performers from Oxford and Japan will take you on a journey around, and through, the spaces of Oxford Castle.

Devised and directed by local choreographer Cecilia Macfarlane, site specific work TRA^VERSE: Under Riding, Over Arching, with 150 dancers of all ages performing each night with live musicians, explores the bridges that we make between cultures and between art forms. (more…)
