Beeston Festival, Cross Flatts Park 

ACCA are on the loose! Held captive for many months, they are now roaming free, seeking people to help them make dances again. Sneaky, funny looking creatures, ACCA like to watch and copy what you do as you walk around the festival, and sometimes they make noises that sound like words. There’s two ACCAs to spot, and they might turn up at any time so keep your eyes peeled, but be careful they may try to make you laugh!

free sharings:

Sunday 24th October 2021, 1pm - 3pm & 5pm - 7pm

Slung Low, The Holbeck, Jenkinson Lawn, Leeds, LS11 9QX

We'll be sharing excerpts from our research in the studio. Come along, enjoy free refreshments and see what we've been cooking up. 

They may be some clowning, some singing and quite possibly some dancing!

Welcome to our Cautivas world!

ACCA is currently researching a new dance theatre show called Cautivas, which we are aiming to make for non-theatre spaces and is structured around engaging audiences in and around South Leeds.

So, what is Cautivas?

 

Well, can you imagine a world where all arts & culture has been outlawed? It's now illegal to make art, engage with art or support anyone who is. It's in this world where we set Cautivas, and see a desperate artist from the resistance kidnap a politician enforcing this regime. What happens next will be revealed as the show unfolds!

Below, you'll find a whole host of FREE activities to keep you up to date on the project. You can see us performing live, come and do a workshop with us and also get sneaky behind the scenes access through live streams of rehearsals and blog posts. 

This project is supported by Arts Council England Project Grants and partnerships with Slung Low, Yorkshire Dance, Pro Dance Leeds and The Dance Studio Leeds.
