ERIMUS Community Cast 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 – just ask the 100 people from Hull (here and here) who performed with us in Rush!

Erimus takes its inspiration from Middlesbrough’s motto, We Shall Be, reflecting the exciting future of the Town Hall. 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, a spectacular dance theatre piece with projection mapping and text derived from conversations with Middlesbrough residents and participants in the show.

Erimus will be a spectacular experience. Five performances over three days from May 25 to 27 will create an unforgettable and uplifting experience.

Undecided? Let Debbie Mowforth have her say about what it’s like to work with us, have a look at our Facebook reviews and see what people say.

Sign up and be the voice of your town’s future.

Please note when you submit the form, it will take you to the home page of our website.

The restoration of Middlesbrough Town Hall was funded by Middlesbrough Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The community cast workshops are supported by our Creative Fuse North East Innovation Pilot, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and European Regional Development Funding.
