Spill is an outdoor production by Shaun Parker created specifically for playgrounds, aiming to take dance to the heart of our local communities. Combining quirky, dynamic dance with high energy street gymnastics, the dancers in this performance blaze a colourful trail across the structures and landscapes of the playground. Each performance is unique as the show scrambles around, over, under and through swings, slides and roundabouts.
In 2012 Spill was part of the Outdoor Dance Programme, led by DanceXchange, in partnership with Dancefest, Dancescape and Dudley Performing Arts. This production was programmed as part of Dancing for the Games and the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Spill was performed in 36 locations and 112 performances across the UK.
Highly playful, at times teasingly comical, this is a cheeky dance celebration of the child within.
