We are pleased to welcome Doubles to the 2019 Lindfield Arts Festival! Doubles brings bursts of colour to the streets in a collision of dance and ping pong! Doubles is an exciting pop up performance where contemporary dance and Ping Pong combine. The project encourages communities to come together to enjoy art, sport and healthy living. The highly physical piece aims to surprise passers-by and encourage them to join the pop up Ping Pong party. The colourful and quirky performances of Doubles began as a collaboration between Joe Garbett Dance and Ping!England supported by Studio Wayne McGregor and Redbridge Drama Centre as part of East London Dance’s dance enterprise ideas fund. More details will be posted closer to the event so stay tuned and you can sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date with the latest 2019 Lindfield Arts Festival news! Sign up Now:
