sample: a small amount of something that gives you information about the thing it was taken from
Sampler is an exciting dance-theatre and music show made by Lyra's Young Company, working with professional theatre, dance and music makers.
Sampler is a celebration of the random and seemingly disconnected fragments that when pieced together give a unique picture of who we are.
Inspired by sampling techniques in music and by traditional cross-stitch samplers, the Young Company have turned their identities and emotions into a performance using sampling and samplers as a vehicle for expression.
Sampler is suitable for everyone aged 8 – 12 years and their families.
Sampler is supported by Young Start, The Robertson Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation and by Kintry Environmental Trust.
Sampler’s creative team is:
Jo Timmins – Director
Mark Bleakley - Lead Dance & Visual Artist
Caitlin Mulgrew - Music Artist
Nicola Milazzo - Design & Creative Technician
Ema Park - Dance Artist
David Bowes - Technician
Konrad - Production Trainee
Performed by Ella, Steph, Kyle, Grace, Ayo, Ty, Delali, Skye and Sandy.
