Boomba Down The Tyne

Northern Rock Foundation Hall

This performance by The Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company Fool Ensemble and Opraxo is followed by a Samba Ceilidh.

‘Boomba Down the Tyne’ has been commissioned by the Unlimited programme, part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

The Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company, working in collaboration with Opaxoro, a Brazilian learning disabled led dance company, are currently devising a new large scale performance which combines the spirit of the Blaydon Races and Boi Bumba, both popular North Eastern stories from England and Brazil respectively.

The performance will combine Commedia Del’Arte, singing, dance, music, puppets, percussion, costume and digital imagery – followed by a SambaCeilidh!
