We step outside and start to dance - audio experience
We step outside and start to dance is a new immersive audio experience written by award-winning North East playwright Alison Carr (The Last Quiz Night on Earth, UK Tour; Iris, Live Theatre). We step outside and start to dance is inspired by an outbreak of uncontrollable dancing recorded in the 1500s when a woman did, indeed, step outside and start to dance. And kept dancing. Within a month, four hundred people had joined her. Why did this happen? Experts have put it down to mass hysteria brought on by extreme stress and hardships. Which surely begs the question – if ever there was a time to start dancing, isn’t it now? You are invited to download the piece, press play and start to dance (not for a month, don't worry!). Alongside the audio experience, there is also a BSL interpreted and captioned film which you can find at www.westarttodance.com. Any dancing is welcome, from brilliant to terrible, it’s just about taking part!
