Wannabe Leodis at Light Night
First year students from our undergraduate performing arts courses will be taking part in Light Night Leeds, an annual free multi-arts and light festival that takes over Leeds city centre for to nights.
What would happen if Harry Houdini’s failed escape from a locked cask of Tetley Ale was performed to Kaiser Chief’s ‘I Predict A Riot’? What would Lord of the Rings feel like if JRR Tolkien had been inspired by Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads’? Could Charles Dickens have loved Leeds if only he had met Ernie Wise? What would Northern Ballet’s Wuthering Heights look like performed by orcs? In Wannabe Leodis, a fifty-person ensemble of musicians, theatre makers and dancers explore the contamination of past and present artistic and cultural practices that have helped to inform Leeds.
This event is free.
