Extraordinary Bodies present "Weighting" in Dulwich Park May 9th and 10th.

Weighting for an extraordinary show?

This May, Southwark invites you to the premiere of Weighting, to watch an incredible FREE circus show showcasing a fantastic fusion of music, dance and aerial acrobatics featuring disabled and non-disabled performers. This unique performance is fully accessible for everyone to enjoy and is set to be a highlight of this summer.

Extraordinary-5.-Mark-Cambell-Weighting-360x360Weighting will premiere in Dulwich Park on Saturday 9 with performances at 2pm and 7pm and on Sunday 10 May with a performance at 2pm as a part of Dulwich Festival. The cast includes eight extraordinary performers who take to the air in a joyful exploration of journeys, risk-taking and transformation. The show takes place on a 12m x 12m rig that transforms the set from bridge to staircase, swinging and lifting performers high into the air.

This innovative performance combines music, circus, and dance and theatre into a 45 minute show with a beautiful musical score written by musician and theatre-maker Dom Coyote and, multi-instrumentalist, Ted Barnes, best known for his work with singer-songwriter Beth Orton. The music is played by a five piece band and includes a finale song sung by a 100 strong locally recruited, integrated choir.

Weighting is produced by Extraordinary Bodies, the UK’s first integrated circus company showcasing disabled and non-disabled performers, funded by Southwark Council and supported using funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England
