HOME River Stage Takeover: Sun 6 August

Music and dance fills our third and final day of the River Stage Takeover at the Southbank. Join us!

Vogue Workshop by House of Ghetto
13:00 – 13:45
Made popular by the likes of Madonna and the classic documentary Paris is Burning (1990), voguing
is characterized by model-like poses integrated with angular and linear arm, leg and body
movements. This dance-based workshop will explore the link between voguing and fashion
portraiture. Strike a pose!

Mr Wilson’s Second Liners
13:50 – 14:25, 15:30 – 16:00
Where New Orleans meets 90s club classics. 90s club culture’s greatest hero, Mr Tony Wilson, is
back with upbeat dance tracks over traditional slow hymns. The vision is an anarchic, street theatre
extravaganza, bursting with colour and sound, and rousing audiences young and old into a joyful
frenzy.

Little Soldier Productions
Derailed
14:30 – 15:30
Meet Merce, Patricia, Dan and Thomas. Keyboard warriors, forty-somethings worried that their
children hate them for not making more of a difference, and lots of music. An unpredictable and
urgent theatrical counter protest. A show about changing the world, with a live rock band. Welcome to
the revolution.

Mighty Heart Theatre
16:00 – 16:30
Find out what people think of Manchester and the North through verbatim reading.
