Touring He Ain’t Heavy in 2018

As you can see from these photos, taken by Eleanor Postlethwaite, Sophie and I had a lot of fun performing He Ain’t Heavy last year! We had some amazing experiences everywhere we went, meeting brilliant people at every venue, in the audience and in the workshops. One of my favourite moments (of many) was when we invited some younger audience members to join us on stage for the wedding at Jacksons Lane and one lad made a bee-line for Sophie’s guitar, she reacted with gold comedy timing announcing to the audience that luckily the wedding musician had just arrived! This was a particularly exciting relaxed performance as it was the first one that Jacksons Lane had hosted.

We had a great time running theatre and circus workshops for a wide range of people across the country. Disguised in the picture below, amongst the audience volunteers, are some members of Skylight Youth’s Circus who were up for some experimental circus-theatre creation in the workshop following the performance. I’m glad to say that the experiment led to some fabulously creative results and we hope to add some more elements to the process pot to see what we can make this year.

If you’re wondering what’s next for Oddly Moving and He Ain’t Heavy, then I can confirm that plans are afoot and further tour dates will be announced a little later in the year! If you haven’t seen the show and would like to watch a trailer then there is a video at the end of Turtle Key Art’s Oddly Moving page.

In the meantime please get in touch if you’d like to have a chat or for more information; we can now be contacted via email oddlymovingcircus@gmail.com, or Facebook or Twitter or Instagram!
