Performance and Social Eventevent • 26 Jun 2015 6pm–9pm
Young people from our Society of Explorers group and Red Tape Central invite you to this live performance mash-up of musical genres, video and dance, developed with Harold Offeh as part of Cutting Shapes.
A multi-media performance involving Hype Dance Studios and young participants juxtaposes videos and live dancers in a high-energy new work. Live music from Red Tape Central students mixes influences from hip-hop to blues and metal to electronica, drawing attention to the fragmented nature of youth culture in the digital age.
Cutting Shapes is part of the AHRC Connected Communities Festival, which takes place from 15 – 29 June 2015. The project is an Arts Enterprise collaboration with the University of Sheffield, and forms part of Site Gallery’s young people’s programme which is supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
