Worthing Theatres and Museum are excited to announce the return of SPIN OUT for summer 2021! SPIN OUT is a season of free shows taking place on the promenade outside the Pavilion Theatre on Saturdays during July and August.
Pop down to the Pavilion Theatre Promenade and experience the breathtaking majesty of Birds of Prey with Dizzy O’Dares Falconry Dismay, Saturday 31 July. Featuring a range of birds including Vultures, Falcons and Owls. Lead by head falconer Kevin Tickle, each bird will showcase their unique behaviours, personalities and hunting techniques.
Or enjoy Strong Enough, Saturday 7 August, a powerfully optimistic outdoor show that uses circus physicality, comedy and feats-of-strength to celebrate stories of finding strength in unexpected places. A circus Strong Lady will enthral you with the stories she has collected from a huge range of ordinary people, about a time when they were strong. Using circus skills, feats of strength and storytelling we revel in the strength we find and build when we are at our edge.
Manchester based Kapow Dance Circus Theatre bring you Grow, Saturday 14 August. A lively, energetic and vibrant dance theatre duet celebrating nature’s power to rejuvenate itself, take over spaces and grow through the cracks. Kapow combine humanity and a comedic gardening, leaving audiences feeling uplifted and inspired to get out and enjoy nature.
BOX, Saturday 21 August, features impressive hand-balancing, playful acrobatics and a mysterious box of tricks. A humorous and uplifting tale about sibling connection, competition and compassion, based on, in, atop and around a custom-built Cube that expands over the course of the show. While Beam Blaster, Saturday 28 August, features a UFO driven by two intergalactic space gals; challenging all ages to a space boogie! A mobile party of Jupiter sized proportions with more glitter and shiny things than the solar system itself.
Saturday 28 August 2021 also sees Joseph Toonga return to Worthing with his latest dance piece Born to Protest. Joseph’s first outdoor work for his company Just Us Dance Theatre. Born to Protest is part of a Hip Hop dance theatre trilogy he is creating to highlight black excellence and challenge racial stigma. It aims to dismantle presumptions about the black male and female figure based on intimidation, danger and isolation, revealing instead character traits around fragility, vulnerability and a constant battle to prove oneself. This hypersensitivity of the black body in space is magnified by Born to Protest’s cast of seven* performing en masse to a soundscape which sets up an intense energy with Hip Hop beats and voice over.
All the shows will take place on the Promenade outside the Pavilion Theatre. There is no need to book for these free shows. Just turn up! For more information on any of the events visit the website or call the WTM Box Office on 01903 206206.
