Thrive by Grace Willow & Cirque Bijou

Performance information
1st — 2nd October 2021

Co-presented by Arts by the Sea Festival, we have teamed up with choreographer Grace Willow (Joy in Dance) and internationally renowned circus production company Cirque Bijou to bring you a brand new dance show.

PDSW has commissioned this piece and it will feature 6 local dance artists performing with beautiful LED light-up umbrellas.

The idea for this work was conceived during national lockdowns. All those involved in the project are firm believers in the power of art & dance to uplift, entertain, inspire and delight. We are keen to explore the role dance can play in times of uncertainty. How it can lift peoples’ spirits, transport them, providing hope and escapism.

This is a celebration of how we thrive (as artists and as people) even through the strangest and hardest of times.

As the dancers illuminate the spaces around them with the mesmerising umbrellas, let’s celebrate the light in the darkness both physically and metaphorically…

Thrive will take place outside in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens and is part of the Arts by the Sea Festival

See Thrive at 7:15pm, 8:15pm and 9:15pm on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 October 2021.

Approximate running time: 15 minutes
