One-off performance explores the lives of women


A theatrical dance production exploring the lives of women will come to Barton-upon-Humber on Saturday 8 October as part of the LiveLincs autumn season of events.

Panta Rei Danseteater presents ‘I Wish Her Well’, a ‘strong, thought-provoking’ production that forms part of the National Rural Touring Strategic Dance Initiative. The scheme was launched last year to encourage more contemporary dance companies to visit village halls and community venues around the country.

The show, which will be performed at Barton-upon-Humber Assembly Rooms, has already toured Norway, Sweden and Tanzania and was one of the star attractions at CODA Oslo International Dance Festival’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

‘I Wish Her Well’ is split into two parts – the first half focuses on the stories of four women, the second is based on the diaries of a 16 year-old girl, now an 85 year-old woman.
