Coming to see Stepping into the Light on Thursday 24th, Friday 25th or Saturday 26th May? Join us between 6pm and 9pm on George Street Norwood (outside the Concert Hall). The road will be closed so you can watch the event in safety and peace with your friends and family. You can also enjoy the event from the balcony. The show will go ahead rain or shine, bring a brolley and warm things. You can buy a delicious hot chocolate from Argo’s street cafe to complete your nocturnal adventure!
You too can step into the light! Three of the dances that appear in the projection have been choreographed in advance, so you can join in while watching. Get yourself in the mood for a flash mob experience or just groove along. Here are the links to the three dances, commissioned especially for stepping into the light:
All the scenes tell a part of the story of the Norwood Town Hall and its meaning and significance to local people. Indigenous dances represent the significance of dance to people since ancient times, and the handing down of stories and knowledge to young. Memories of local people are illustrated to create a sense of a living photo album, and other scenes are representing the deep fondness people have for the rituals of gathering to dance, celebrate, commemorate and enjoy arts and culture together.
Read our project blog to find out more about the process of making Stepping into the Light, and come along on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of this week to share the light with us.
