Stage Round Up
Following the success of their first outdoor piece Tracking, integrated dance company StopGAP visit The Point during its 20th annual dance festival with their new outdoor performance SPUN Productions on Sunday.
Inspired by the popularity of interactive TV programmes, SPUN Productions is a vibrant piece of dance theatre set in the imaginary world of fictitious TV programme “So You’re Not Sure If This Is Dance”.
Focusing on the story of misguided hero Dave, the ten performers parody the corporate star-making machine and the erratic nature of entertainment TV.
u THE Theatre Royal Winchester welcomes back to the stage everyone’s favourite pig in Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt.
Tickets have been selling fast but there are still a few left for some performances, which run tomorrow and Sunday.
