PROJECTS STAGE - 6th July
2013 (Playground Party)
Our new 300-seater auditorium will host the culmination of several
exciting, region-wide community arts projects involving Zulu Tradition,
Phoenix Dance Theatre & the Anthem for Garforth.
Entry to this stage is by ticket only due to the limited capacity,
and we will be prioritizing the places for family and friends of
those taking part in the community projects and performances. However
if seating is still available for one of the sessions a limited
number of other audience members will be allowed access.
More information will be posted here soon.
THIS YEAR'S PROJECTS STAGE <<<
Zulu Tradition Project
Zulu Tradition is a cast of Zulus from the Kingdom of Kwa-Zulu Natal
who have toured festivals, theatres and schools throughout Britain,
Russia, Italy, France, Germany and South Africa. They showcase a
kaleidoscope of dynamic traditional Zulu culture. Having worked
in over 10 primary schools in Doncaster and Leeds they will bring
the young people of those communities together to perform traditional
Zulu dance and song in a vibrant and exciting stage show.
Phoenix Dance Theatre Project
For the last 3 years, Garforth Arts Festival has worked with Phoenix
Dance Theatre on a multitude of projects, and 2013 will be no exception.
Our project stage will host Phoenix Dance Theatre's regional work,
bringing over 300 young dancers from across Yorkshire and beyond
for a series of showcase performances.
