Random Acts of Kindness at Holmfirth Arts Festival

A series of pop-up interactive performances - look for the tandem bicycle!

Dance Event

Them Two Dance embark on a journey astride their tandem bicycle to encourage the people of Yorkshire to perform more Random Acts of Kindness. In this series of interactive pop-up duets, they ask you to be kind, to be generous and to help them out if they get a puncture!

Talkshop: Join Them Two Dance for a chat and cup of tea at 11am - 12 at Sids Café. Tell them about the random acts of kindness you’d like to see in your community and they will do their best to make them happen.

Pop-up performances: Look out for the tandem bicycle around the small park, Holmeside Gardens on Station Road and also in Victoria Park from 2:30pm - 4.30 for a chance to experience the #RandomTandem.

This work has been co-commissioned by Yorkshire Dance Amplified, The Civic Barnsley & Yorkshire Festival with a commitment to working and developing audiences for outdoor work in Yorkshire and the North of England. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

A bit more information...

Holmfirth’s annual multi-arts event presents a fresh take on the town, its history and its communities through newly commissioned work, theatre, spoken word, comedy, music, community and participatory projects.
The 2016 Festival, which runs from 17th-26th June, will have you turning cartwheels with poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan and musician Luke Carver Goss performing a song cycle about Holmfirth’s infamous tame tiger Fenella. Yorkshire Dance will be out on the streets, bringing you ‘random acts of kindness’, plus there’s an opportunity to join a vibrant street party and ‘Creature Carnival’ on Saturday 18th June.
This year’s collaboration with Yorkshire Festival includes a free programme of intriguing outdoor performances including Stefano di Renzo’s wordless balancing act, ‘Hold On’, complete with whirling buckets, catapulting planks and flying cups.
