Bill and Bobby

20 Feb 2015

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
