Stanley Halls, London

Sunday, 29 Mar

£3.00 - £15.00

You are invited to spend an evening with SLiDE, to watch, eat and dance with us, as we celebrate dance and diversity. 

The first part of the evening is a performance of Insert title here, a beautiful and poignant work where the performers portray the ebb and flow of togetherness. They deal with the balance between success and failure, breaking and repairing whilst seeking a thread to make sense of it all. Will they find common ground and a place of unity? 

During the performance audience members are guided through the process of naming the work and are invited to respond to what they see and how they feel. You will also have the chance to meet the SLiDE creative team and enjoy some food in the gallery of Stanley Halls. 

After the performance, we invite you to join us to dance together in a very special ceilidh hosted by Folk Dance Remixed, a ground-breaking company fusing folk and hip hop styles. 

South London Inclusive Dance Experience (SLiDE) is a leading Croydon based inclusive dance company, creating opportunities for people to encounter dance. Their work seeks to increase participation through dance projects and performances, reaching diverse communities and people.

Reasonably priced food will be available on the night provided by local company Perfect Taste.

“What a gift for a Sunday. Great audience interaction, serene setting and the work was mesmerising, romantic, peaceful, affirming and
​joyous, authentic and honest.” Ray Oudkerk, Assistant Principal, The Brit School

“It was about connecting, looking after each other and beauty in difference and everyone got that” Paula Murray, Creative Director,
Croydon Council

Croydonites Festival of New Theatre

Croydonites is a festival of new theatre and performance for Croydon. Its mission is to showcase local theatre makers, and bring some of the best contemporary performance work from around the UK to CR0 doorsteps. The inaugural event took place in November 2015 when four companies presented work at two venues. The 4th edition took place in May 2019 and featured nine artists over four weeks in five venues. It has become a fixed event on Croydon's Cultural Calendar and regularly commissions new work by local artists. In 2020 it will present the 5th edition.
