SUNDAY 14th AUGUST – The Cut, Halesworth
We’re delighted to invite you to a Sunday afternoon event this Summer, to celebrate a particular aspect of Mel Horwood’s life; the original dance films that she made with local people, in Suffolk.
Mel was a very experienced community dance practitioner, based in Suffolk, who later in her career developed her practice to incorporate creating original dance films using filming and editing techniques whilst working with local participants with varying levels of experience of dance.
This is an opportunity for us to gather, remember and celebrate as we watch some of the films she made between 2006-2016, many of which have only been shown in public once before and mainly at platform sharing events at The Cut in Halesworth, an arts venue close to where she lived. So we have chosen to return there to screen those films together, as a curated one-off but friendly and informal event.
The Cut will be open for arrivals from 1.30pm and we intend to finish approx. 4.30pm but this timing might drift slightly. The bar will be open before, during & after the event to enable people to purchase drinks whilst they chat, if they wish. We will be providing tea, coffee, cake & ice creams in the interval (This feels only right for a celebration of Mel!)
Travel & Parking:
The Cut is approx. 2 minute walk from Halesworth train station. There is very limited car parking next to The Cut so it’s best to park in one of the town centre car parks & walk the relatively short distance (approx. 10 mins). If anyone has mobility issues then please make me aware so we can look at reserving a parking space.
Spreading the Word:
If you know of anyone that might be interested in coming along to the ‘Dance Within Us’ film screening event then please do forward the attached e-flyer on to them directly as it would be lovely to have a range of people join us, if they can make it. We’re hopeful that many of the local people who took part will hear about it and join us to see themselves on the big screen once again!
This public event is open to everyone & little ones are very welcome. We have sole use of the venue that afternoon so it will be fine for parents/carers with little ones to nip in & out between films & hang out in the cafe area if sitting in the theatre space whilst the films are screened isn’t really what they feel like doing at certain points.
This is a free but ticketed event. Please book the number of tickets you require in advance via The Cut’s website The Cut | Promoting The Arts & Creativity or via their Box Office 0330 303 3211 (open Tues – Sat, 10am -2pm)
