DIG 21: MHz presents STRUT
In Pollokshields Thursday 7th October
Govanhill Sunday 10th October
This performance is specifically designed for the residents of Pollokshields and Govanhill to enjoy from their windows and doorsteps.
Route, timing and performers info will be available from the MHz website>
STRUT is a night time outdoor performance and mobile projection parade by Megahertz featuring 5 local dance heroes from Govanhill and Pollokshields who will perform personal choreographies reflecting the celebratory energy of our much loved neighbourhoods in their own styles of Bhangra, Salsa, Romani, Hip-Hop and Contemporary .
These talented movers and shakers were selected from a wide-ranging Open Call, with the help of a community panel, and most of them are performing publicly for the first time.
The rotating one-performer parade weaves through the streets, giving the spectators time to watch several dances, and show their appreciation by cheering, flickering their lights and wave to their neighbours before the procession has moved away.
ACCESS: Highly Visual / No Text
The STRUT Dancers are: Seema, Joshua Macmillan, Nancy Jacinto, Nathan Mcgarvey, Rusi Rostas and Florian Hendrea
Supported by Creative Scotland, Tramway, Govanhill Baths Community Trust and Renfrewshire Leisure.
