Danceeast partnered with Lowestoft Maritme Museum for Lowestoft Dance Map performance
Members of Lowestoft community groups came together on Saturday 21 July for a performance of the Lowestoft Dance Map, an interpretation of the story of Lowestoft’s fisher girls through movement.
DanceEast and Glass House Dance have worked with a number of groups over the last few months including Ashley School, Key Stage 2, Leading Lives: FABBA Theatre Group, Marina Theatre: Next Stagers Theatre Group, Suffolk Snitchers and Knitters and The Rogue Shanty Chorus.
The Dance Map performance took place at Sparrows Nest Gardens at 11am and was free of charge, including entry to Lowestoft Maritime Museum.
Lowestoft Dance Map is part of Making Waves Together, led by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Waveney District Council, is seeing communities and organisations in both towns work together to inspire and engage our communities as both participants and audiences. All this is made possible through the Great Place Scheme, delivered by Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by Historic England.
DanceEast is looking for individuals, schools and community groups to get involved in the 2019 project working with Glass House Dance and the Lowestoft Museum to create a performance through workshops which celebrates aspects of Lowestoft’s rich history.
