Bradford Bubble Up is this weekend!

The Bradford Bubble Up is a series of water-themed events across Bradford city centre on the 7th, 8th and 9th of September. Events will be arts-focused, family-friendly and participatory. The activities will use many of Bradford’s assets including its empty shops, local DIY creative talent, and all of the city’s National Portfolio Organisations.

As part of the weekend Theatre in the Mill presents:

Sonic Journeys

One Last Dance (An Chéad Damhsa) - Instant Dissidence

'Following the Brexit vote I am leaving, and One Last Dance – An Chéad Damhsa is my final love letter to the UK....

Given that I arrived in the UK in 1994 because of my passion for dance (I received a European Union Erasmus scholarship to study dance at the University of Surrey, Guildford), it makes sense that I leave the UK also through my art: the medium of dance. I desire to re-visit the legacy of my 24 years spent in the UK by visiting venues where I have performed before: the work should tour.

I want for my sadness around Brexit to, by the end of the work, have transformed into gratitude for the many beautiful years I have had in the country. So the idea of a tour on foot (a perambulating dance) started to emerge, so that the two months which would take me to undertake it offered enough space for this metamorphosis.'
Rita Marcalo, Instant Dissidence

One Last Dance by Instant Dissidence is at Theatre in the Mill  Monday 8th October, 7.30pm (pay what you decide)

BSL interpreted performance.
Benefit cuts are hitting disabled people the hardest. Half of people in poverty are disabled or live with a disabled person. The future looks grim, so how can we get people to sit up, listen and care and not keel over with empathy-fatigue?
Award-winning poet and theatre maker Jackie Hagan’s way has been to make a new solo show that features the real voices of proper skint disabled people she knows. Jackie has conducted interviews with people from all over the country living on the fringes and the spaces in between.

‘fierce use of humour teamed with passionate insight about working-class life’ Mancunion

Praise for Jackie Hagan:
‘A hymn to those who are hanging on by their fingertips but refusing to let go’ The Guardian
