Without Walls Weekend: An Introduction

This May, you can experience some of the most exciting new outdoor performance, and it won’t cost you a penny.

For two unforgettable afternoons, highly-skilled performers transform a couple of Brighton parks into open-air theatrical bonanzas. Across 6 brand-new shows you’ll see tightrope walking, seriously silly theatre, hip hop capoeira, disability-defying dance, rock ‘n’ roll juggling and… bees? (You’ll see…!)

Everyone’s welcome, so bring your friends, family and a good old-fashioned picnic. We’ll provide the entertainment!

Without Walls Weekend

Louder than Words

Cathy Waller Company

Co-commissioned by Brighton Festival

‘Cathy Waller has established herself as one of the most exciting choreographers to watch out for.’ Hakeen Onibodu, Director of Impact Dance

Part of the Without Walls Weekend

Sun 3 May, 12 noon - 5pm, Woodingdean Central Park
Mon 4 May, 12 noon - 5pm, Saltdean Oval

Join us from 12 noon each day for a packed afternoon of all these new and exciting outdoors shows. Bring a picnic and the family.

In this brand new, explosive and dynamic work, two dancers compete, test and outdo each other while being challenged by the multiple instruments and percussion played live alongside them. As the powerful, beat-heavy sound intensifies, all the performers are drawn into a competition between movement and music, striving to outshine each other in a vigorous and vibrant display.

Winner of the London Dance Award in 2012, Cathy Waller creates intensely physical works that show contemporary dance with underlying influences from hip hop and capoeira. Hers is an exhilarating brand of performance, in which movement and live music push each other to the outer boundaries of excitement and intricacy.
