Outerglobe update: The SHIMMY SUNDAY 19th; Artists in action; Upcoming ...

    AT ‘THE SHIMMY’ 19th MAY 2013  is very proud to be commissioned to be part of The Shimmy 2013 building on our first association in 2012 with a  brilliant rosta of musicians, singers, spoken word  artists chosen for their excellence & ability to respond to The Shimmy brief of interaction & awareness of the unique environment. Thank you to the May Gardens Project for their input & of course Wandsworth Arts Team

The Shimmy is an invitation to take a walk through diverse outdoor spaces and have unusual arts encounters along the way. The essential brand or aesthetic is for: surprising and quirky cross-arts performances that are inclusive and informal in nature, low on infrastructure and responsive to different sites.
