Looping The Loop Festival 10-21 April 2014

on March 22, 2014





In partnership with Battersea Arts Centre, four Thanet/East Kent arts organisations collaborate to create a feast of world-class performance – it’s live, local and yours for the taking.


Leading up to and over the Easter holiday, productions from BAC are presented alongside home-grown-in-Thanet plays, storytelling and street theatre from Scandalmongers, Ellie Jones and .dash theatre. There’s a theatre bus tour as well, a series of workshops and the three Thanet town centres of Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs will be taken over by The Dog Walkers in the run-up to the festival.


BAC productions are SHAME by John Berkavitch, MAJOR TOM by Victoria Melody, 97 YEARS by Jo Hellier and TEAM OF THE DECADES by Will Dickie. Home-grown productions are FIREBIRD by Emily Parrish/Scandalmongers, (IN)habit by .dash theatre, LOOPING THE LOOP TOUR by Anette Mutton with the performers collective and THE DOG WALKERS by Ellie Jones.

(pic MAJOR TOM)   At this feast, LOOP BITES offer audiences and the merely intrigued a chance to meet up with the company and share food, for free – there’s supper with SHAME on Easter Saturday 19 April and pre-theatre drinks before MAJOR TOM on Easter Sunday 20 April – it’s our hope to entice the not-so-sure in to share an experience of live performance art, perhaps for the first time. We hope it’s not the last.


The four productions from BAC all explore stories of the individual or family. They include dog shows, beauty pageants, dementia, relationships and shame, presented in every which way through spoken word, dance, sound, film, projection and physical sport.


The Collaborative Touring Network at the core of the partnership links Thanet with Battersea Arts Centre and five other regional towns; Gloucester, Great Yarmouth, Torbay, Darlington and Hull (City of Culture 2017). Over three years the partnership will develop new models of touring theatre and lead to artists across the towns sharing new work, creating new networks.


There’s information on all the shows at www.loopingtheloopfestival.org.uk and tickets are booked through http://www.brownpapertickets.com/producer/548731  or 0800 411888. You can call 07939 542990 for a chat to find out anything more or email us at loopingthanet@gmail.com.


We hope to see you at the shows, down by the coast and the sandy beaches of Thanet. We plan to amuse and entertain you and most importantly to leave you wanting more.
