East Durham Creates are searching for 30 people from across East Durham to take part in our famous festival of light which runs from the 16th-19th November 2017.

For this year’s Lumiere festival in Durham, East Durham Creates are searching for 30 people aged 14+, from across East Durham to be a part of a choreographed public dance performance, which will take place in various locations across the city over the festival. No previous dance experience necessary – beginners welcome!

If you are interested in taking part you NEED to be available for ALL of the following;

  • Saturday 11th November, 12 – 4pm: Rehearsal workshop at Easington Social Welfare Centre. (bring your lunch and a bottle of water)

  • Sunday 19th November for Lumiere performances – 2.30pm (pick up time) – 10.30pm (end of final performance)(transport provided)

This opportunity is open to all, training will be given, no previous dance experience necessary!

Once Lumiere has finished we will be looking for more opportunities to perform, so we would especially like to hear from people who want to be part of something longer term.
