Dundu and Worldbeaters present...
Gentle giants of light meet in a percussive promenade performance through Newbury's town centre in this night-time outdoor performance.
Sense of Unity brings the illuminated large scale puppet, Dundu from Germany together with the UK’s LED-lit, high-energy, percussion ensemble Worldbeaters for the first time.
As dusk falls, follow the band as they parade through the streets of Newbury and discover both baby Dundu and the gentle giant Dundu. Will they find each other? Will they get on?
Enjoy the different musical worlds of Dundu, and the West African Kora and the Latin American based drumming riffs and rhythms. Both companies have enthralled and entertained spectators worldwide.
This world premiere is produced by Activate Performing Arts and has been developed in a residency at the Corn Exchange’s 101 Outdoor Art Creation Space.
Sense of Unity will start at 9.45pm at Newbury Methodist Church, Northbrook Street, Newbury.
The Corn Exchange’s Outdoor Programme is supported by Greenham Common Trust and Arts Council England.
