Live Music and Performance : The Dancing Floor

The Dancing Floor presents: Dancing the World into Being

The Dancing Floor group presents original creative work exploring myth – film, schools workshops and dance events are in all their portfolio.  In this performance, they will offer the chance to visit the otherworld and meet the ancient gods of these islands in an extraordinary creation myth dance, constructed from clues in the Mabinogion.  How does something come out of nothing?  How do we find what is lost?  Do the gods and goddesses live in us or we in them?  How did our ancestors see the world and ask the big questions? With specially composed music from the The Village Quire, who will perform an introductory set of ‘songs of life and death’.
