PERFORMANCE PADDLING POOL
A devising workshop with Liz Clarke.
Do you have an idea for a short performance/cabaret show or character but not quite sure where to take it? Using devising techniques, performance tasks and groupwork we will float the ideas & give them (water) wings! Why not show the results at the ‘Experimental Sailing Club’ later in the week?!
Liz is DP’s founder member and has been called a ‘performance alchemist’ by workshop participants.
Wed 13th July. 7-9pm
Confidence, self expression & positivity through Body & Voice work with a healthy dose of DIVA. Led by Michaela Dunne & Alice Forrest. Michaela is a theatre practitioner with many years experience; she directs with DP and also runs Pink Kitten Dance School. Alice is a professional singer & actor & dedicated dare devil diva!

DIY DIVAS with Opinya Legges
Come and get cozy with the infamous Opinya. She’ll pass on her crafty skills in this informal bitch & stitch style session. Bring ongoing work or start anew! You’ll get to keep your creations and she might even teach you some of her fabled dirty ditties….
PHOTOBOOTH (from midday)
Ever wanted to don some heels & fly to the moon? Our favourite photographers Tanya Moulson & Carl Newland will be here to make your diva dreams a low budget reality in our DIY photobooth (think more polaroid than paparazzi)
Come & celebrate the project at one of our unique DDD parties. There will be discussions, talks, performance & more. Expect a Performance Lecture by Ivana Van Der Fluff (Our ‘woman on the edge’; Bristol’s answer to Annie Sprinkle; but ‘cheaper’), film showing and the strangest auction prizes you can imagine…
