Events: Musicians' workshop with Tim Laycock and Colin Thompson

'...an hop about like fleas' is a concert, a performance, a 360° digital experience, a new dance, and some very old stories, curated by Caperbag CIC with Tim Laycock, Colin Thompson and the Great Caper in the stunning ICCI 360° Arena.

Calling young dancers aged 16 -25yrs from any dance background...

Immediate Start.

A unique opportunity to be involved in the creation of a new dance. Bringing tradition into the multi media environment of the ICCI 360 Dome. A dance in traditional Cotswold Morris style, to be performed to a tune by Benjamin Rose of the 1820’s and played for you by today’s young Dorset musicians.

A series of workshops will be held in Weymouth/ Dorchester leading to a performance on Friday 7th Sept 2012.

And calling all youth musicians...

A unique opportunity for young South West based acoustic musicians, aged 12-25, to take part in the Cultural Olympiad. ‘…an hop about like fleas!’.

  • Sun 8th July -  The Old Town Hall, Weymouth 10am-12.30pm
  • Sat 14th July - Scout Hut Dorchester 10am-12.30pm
  • Friday 7th Sept - whole day workshop ICCI 360 Dome Weymouth with a performance the same evening.
All workshops will be led by Tim Laycock and Colin Thompson. Sheet music and a CD will be provided at the pre- workshops. Please bring your own music stand.

Back in 1820 an innkeeper, farmer and, we believe West Gallery musician, Benjamin Rose started to collect the tunes of his time, some famous, some local and some of his own. His manuscripts, recently discovered in an auction, present the bedrock of this production. It is open to secondary school aged acoustic musicians of the area. There will be a full day’s workshop on Friday 7th Sept in the dome leading to a performance that evening.
