Dawns i Bawb

P.A.R.A.D.E

Dawns i Bawb are joining forces with National Dance Company of Wales, Marc Rees, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Pontio to celebrate 100 years of the original PARADE, to be presented at Pontio, Bangor. The original PARADE was a cultural revolutionary piece that caused quite a scandal at the time.

Dawns i Bawb are looking to recruit between 20 – 24 young people aged 16+ to perform as workers / protesters in the Pontio production. This will be a promenade performance and the group will perform a physical role which will include being choreographed in terms of moving from one place to another. The piece will be performed bilingually and the performers may have spoken text. No previous experience is needed and people of all abilities and backgrounds are welcome.

Rehearsals will be held in the Caernarfon area on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September 2017, followed by Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October. Additional rehearsal dates will be held leading up to the week of production but these are still to be finalised.

Performance dates are 28th & 29th October, with full technical and dress rehearsals on the 26th and 27th. You will need to be available for all the dates confirmed so far.
