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: An Introduction

Without Walls Weekend

Bill and Bobby

Stopgap Dance Company

Danced and devised by Lucy Bennett and David Toole

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 new and exciting outdoors shows. Bring a picnic and the family.

Lucy Bennett and David Toole channel the magic and the magnetism of the screen’s greatest dance duo in tribute to the star partnership of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Bill & Bobby is inspired by the Art Deco sophistication of the 1930s, and particularly by the film classic Swing Time..

Stopgap Dance is at the forefront of producing works devised by disabled and non-disabled artists. Fred Astaire practically defined our perception of popular dance, and like him, the disabled dancer David Toole has changed the landscape of dance through works such as DV8’s The Cost of Living.

Bill & Bobby is an invigorating showcase for his expressive physicality and unique dance language.

Commissioned by Without Walls and Winchester Hat Fair. Co-Commissioned by The National Theatre's Watch This Space Festival. Supported by University of Surrey
