ERIMUS CALL OUT

Southpaw Dance Company and Middlesbrough Town Hall are looking for 100 volunteers to participate in an immersive dance performance, Erimus, that will celebrate the reopening of Middlesbrough Town Hall.

No previous experience of dance or performance is required!

Erimus will celebrate the future of Middlesbrough Town Hall, exploring what it means to be from Middlesbrough, celebrating Middlesbrough’s rich cultural identity and how the Town Hall acts as a beacon within that cultural landscape. The performance will highlight the history of the building and lead audiences into previously unknown areas, such as the cells and courtroom, culminating in a large-scale mass movement finale!

  • Graham segues fluid B Boying danced with expressive skill into long-limbed contemporary motion; the effect is darkly mesmerising, the quartet of coiling bodies springing and unspringing beautiful to watch

  • Atmospheric, vigorous and breathtaking.

  • Choreographer Robbie Graham takes the lead role Faust. His fluid movement is a joy to watch: it makes his dances of drunken debauchery as elegant as ballet. All on stage have an uncanny, gravity-defying poise, which allows them to balance on chairs ad juggle goblets of fire, uplifting their audience in a spectacle that is joyfully Mephistophelean.

  • Witty, hard-edged, sure in focus...

  • "Southpaw were great and one of the audience’s favourites, everybody is talking of them!”
