IN A LAND FAR FAR.. TODAY
AND FAT SAM
SLIDE Youth Dance Theatre and Darwin Entertainment Centre present a SLIDE double bill performance
In this final piece of work for 2020, SLIDE Youth Dance Theatre's Dancers Co-Op and Company Two deliver a double bill of new adventures In A Land Far, Far…Today and Fat Sam's Gang.
In A Land Far, Far…Today, 17 people go missing and a reward is offered…sometimes you find what you're looking for in the unlikeliest of places.
Hilaria Sharp sits alone with her trolley of random paraphernalia, as a parade of everyday strangers and fairweather friends come in and out of Bubbles' Laundrette, their domestic and social routines as predictable as clockwork. From the 'Influencer' to the 'Most Organised Teacher on Earth', everyone who enters is a known quantity. Or are they? And when things go awry, who can they really rely on?
United only by their crazy friendship, Fat Sam's Gang is a motley crew of misfits. They have nowhere to go, and what's more - they are up to no good.
In an alleyway fashioned into a home, a gang of street urchins live rough but think big. The kooky chaos of their everyday lives is taken to a whole new level when they find themselves having to contend with a mysterious diamond necklace. Not to mention, the hilariously humourless Superintendent Longbottom.
Enter into SLIDE's new worlds. Come out braver, bolder, and sparkling clean!
