I am Monjer Rashid, Programme Manager, Solar Learning Services and The Urban Games.
We are working with Internationally renowned Prodigal Theatre Company, aka Urban Playground, to prepare a 10 minute performance for the opening of the Olympic Torch Relay celebration events, Newcastle Quayside, Friday 15th June 2012.
A collaboration of dancers, and free runners, expressing themselves through a theatrical display of movements, tricks and flips. Quality and detail are of huge importance, and so the costumes, the soundtrack and the choreography are all custom-made for the showcase. This will truly be an amazing display of the hidden talent in the NE.
You can find out more about the performance and how you can get involved in our activities by visiting www.theurbangames.org.uk
The North East certainly does have talent!!
The project is funded by Newcastle City Council and the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative.
