The Doomsday Dance Band
Shop Window in the Galleries shopping centre, bristol
Jeremy has created and performed all sorts of gig-theatre shows since returning to the UK in 1998. This year it's all coming together again with The Doomsday Dance Band, www.doomsdaydanceband.co.uk, a collective of four unlikely lads and their unique and danceable take on the current crisis in the High Street:
"Times are strange, and the town centre feels quiet - every third shop is shuttered up. But, wait a minute…Is there a light flickering at the back of that dead retail space…? Are those shutters opening? And who are those strange boiler-suited mannequins – with electric guitars…? Oh my God, they’re moving….!
Starting this summer, Doomsday Dance Band will be re-energising the High Street with funk-rock and good times. Their Shop Window gig-theatre show will see empty retail outlets brought to life with music, dance and video installation. The first shows, feature the spectacular dancer Ella Mesma and will be performed in the former Edinburgh Woollen Mill in the Bristol’s Galleries shopping centre on 30th July – watch this space…
