Garden Party Weekend

GOOD YOUTES WALK

Far From the Norm

SATURDAY 22 & SUNDAY 23 MAY, 12PM & 2.45PM

This is a past event which has now ended.

This year’s Garden Party will look a little different to our usual get together in the park, but you can bet it’ll still be a magical weekend of free performance. This year, we’ll have four Zones, each with several performances from incredible artists and companies. Book this Zone to see GOOD YOUTES WALK by Far From the Norm, and stick around after to see Altered States’ Invisible Man and an intervention from JMCAnderson on Saturday.

FAR FROM THE NORM
GOOD YOUTES WALK

This chaotic and frenzied Hip Hop dance theatre work explores how divided we are as a nation. Due to the recent surge of global events including the Covid pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement heightening, now more than ever we are a nation divided.

GOOD YOUTES WALK unravels how the youth of today are reclaiming their future and want to address the divide by creating unity and empathy that transcends race, class, gender and geography.

“We are divided by our experiences and our values but, change is coming.

 

After Far From The Norm’s performance, stick around to see The Invisible Man, an unticketed, walkabout show from Altered States

World Premiere
ALTERED STATES/ MARC PARRY

THE INVISIBLE MAN

Introducing The Invisible Man, brought to you by Altered States industries. An interactive two person 30 minute walkabout performance. Come face to face with the man who isn’t there! A living, breathing science experiment gone wrong. Contained and stewarded by his mysterious doctor, witness the scientific marvel and learn more about he came to (not) be! interact with him as he explores his new powers, but be warned you may see more (or less) than you bargained for!

 

After Saturday’s performances of The Invisible Man, JMCAnderson and workshop participants will be holding an intervention Outside the Forum as a culmination of I AM… Inspired by the Memphis Riots of 1968, the project takes inspiration from the protests by African-American sanitation workers to explore diversity within Norfolk. There’s still time to join in – an in-person workshop will take place at 6.30pm on Tuesday 18 May.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
