Alan Lane from Slung Low
Slung Low is a company that makes adventures for audiences outside of conventional theatre spaces. Slung Low’s aim is to make unlikely, ambitious and original adventures for audiences, each with powerful, moving story at its heart. Shows that re-examine how audiences go and see a piece of theatre. Their ambition has always been to transport our audience to new places and to make them see familiar places from new perspectives.
Slung Low’s home is the Holbeck Underground Ballroom (The HUB). Five railway arches in Holbeck South Leeds. The HUB is a rehearsal space which they make available to those making performance in the region who have need of it.
8pm – 9pm: Food
Artists, working in all disciplines who think they may benefit from engaging with a dynamic, ambitious, artist-led environment are welcome to drop by.
This is a FREE event but booking essential – BOOK HERE.
