Still time to be part of the Mill Girls & Militants finale
We’re still looking for volunteers – dancers and non-dancers alike – from Lancaster, Preston and Burnley
to be part of Ludus Dance’s unforgettable Mill Girls & Militants performance piece celebrating the contribution real working women from Preston, Lancaster and Burnley made to the suffrage movement and how this changed our lives today.
There will be two Mill Girls & Militants performances on Saturday 27th October at 11 am and 3 pm at Preston’s Flag Market.
To take part in the finale of the two performances, all you need to do is take part in a one hour dance session, open to all (under 16’s must be accompanied,) no previous dance experience necessary, to learn the finale dance. You must be able to attend the performance on Sat 27th Oct on Preston’s Flag Market (9am-5pm).
The performances are part of our National Llottery funded Heritage lottery project ‘ Mill Girls & Militants’ – celebrating Lancashire women and the part they played in the suffrage movement.
Performed by the flagship Ludus Youth Dance Company and community groups, the Mill Girls & Militants moving performance shows the women’s frustrations, anger, strength, and ultimate perseverance against a system that holds them down.
This performance brings together heritage and state-of-the-art technology as the performance is filmed on a 360-degree camera to create a digital VR experience. This will be shared through dance and heritage workshops in high schools across the county in early 2019. If you would like to find out more, contact email@example.com
This project is supported by funds raised by the National Lottery Heritage Lottery Fund, Lancashire County Council and Preston City Council.
Workshops to learn the finale and to take part in this unforgettable event are listed on Ludus Dance’s Facebook/Events page. These take place in:
Lancaster – Thursday, 25th October
Preston & Burnley, Wednesday 24th October.
We’d love to see you there!
Thank you to our supporters
