Mem Morrison requests the pleasure of your company at Lancaster Town Hall...
Ringside draws on a lifetime of Turkish Cypriot family weddings, and is an intimate attempt to belong to a culture, to a family and to someone. This site-specific performance will be performed with a group of 30 local female co-performers, playing the roles of Mem’s potential wives and wedding guests.
Mem Morrison is a performer and director. He works in collaboration with multi-disciplinary artists to produce performances for theatres, site-specific spaces and galleries. With a strong emphasis on design, the work often draws upon personal history and environment to evoke the complexities of cultural difference.
We are currently seeking local women to play the parts of ‘potential wives’ in Ringside. If you would like to take part, please contact Rachel or Alice on 01524 592994 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
NB This performance takes place in the Ashton Hall of Lancaster Town Hall.
*A Night Less Ordinary - There are a limited number of free tickets available for this performance to those aged 16-25. Please contact the box office for further details.
