A L I C E @ BAC 5th and 6th of May 2010

It's nearly time for A L I C E our latest work-in-progress, which we'll be sharing at BAC during their Scratch Festival in May.

A L I C E is a highly visual and aesthetic response to the demise of analogue technology; a nostalgic celebration of an era of expectation and potential, and a final goodbye to childhood as the future approaches.

Dancing Brick, in collaboration with Justin Beardsell (VJ Meno), Caroline Devine and Wig Industry are presenting a scratch performance of ALICE.

Please check out our invited artists below:

ALICE is also the first time we've used other performers so if you've ever wondered what a DB play would be like with better actors now's your chance to see. To book go to the BAC website:

Spinning at Milton Keynes International Festival

Great news. Dancing Brick have been commissioned to make a piece for the Milton Keynes International Festival in July. It's going to be a 10 minute play inspired by the festival's theme of 'bicycles'. We're yet to really start work on it but the initial premise is that age old trick of a stationary actor in front of a moving backdrop. But we've got a trick up our sleeve: our backdrop is going to be designed by internationally acclaimed illustrator Serge Seidlitz. We're so excited about this collaboration, and hopefully will make something bold and touching along the lines of Hanna and Ike.

For a little taster of how it might work (imagine a backdrop not drawn by a five year old) see below...
