Be a part of The Colour of Time, an international street theatre event that will take over Doncaster Town Centre in an explosion of colour based on the Indian Holi Festival.
As part of the celebrations for our homegrown production of Dancehall, Cast and Right Up Our Street has teamed up with international theatre makers, Campaigne Artonik to bring their production The Colour of Time to our streets.
And you have been asked to be part of this explosion of powder and joy!
If you’re aged 9+ with an interest in theatre, dance or performance you can join professional performers in this massive processional dance from the centre of town to Cast. Click here to watch a video of the procession.
In a rainbow eruption of powder and dance, The Colour of Time brings a stunning reinvention of the traditional Holi festival celebrated in India. Each year, people throw gulal powder in the air showing great joy and mirth, celebrating unity, acceptance and diversity through these colourful embraces.
In a massive dance-theatre parade, dancers and musicians move in a choreographed parade towards a huge finale. Joining in, the audience are invited into a riotous explosion of colour and joy, painting the sky with an explosion of Gulal powder.
To be part of the company you will need to be available for the dress rehearsal on Friday 18 September (6.30pm - 8.30pm) and the performance on Saturday 19 September (call time 1pm - 4.15pm).
The next workshop for people who want to take part is on Monday 7 September, 6.30pm - 8.30pm. Please register by cliking the link below.
For groups that wish to teach the dance to themselves, the deadline for registration is 11 September 2015.
