Over three days Lakeside will present a programme of innovative and exciting performances showcasing a variety of art forms by some of the most daring and cutting edge artists working in the UK today. There are three different programmes running each night offering a selection of artists and art forms. VIOLIN & ROPE ‘Violin & Rope’ is a collaboration between two of Britain’s leading performers in their fields, violinist Simon Blendis and aerialist Gisele Edwards with music by Bach interspersed with new pieces by composers from jazz, folk and classical traditions. UPRISING Commissioned by the Robin Howard Foundation, this work for seven dancers is a highly engaging, complex piece with a powerful soundtrack that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. AVATAR A unique improvisational performance between dancer, animator and sound designer. The relationship between human movement and drawn animation is explored in real time through live video capture and an evocative electro-acoustic soundscape. 'Firsts' is supported by the Helen Hamlyn Trust in memory of Paul Hamlyn. Please note the £10 for all three evenings offer can only be booked by calling the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
