BLASTED

We are looking for women of all ages that live or work within Lancaster and Morecambe to take part in a commemorative performance and film for the 100th anniversary of the White Lund explosion. 

The munitions factory at White Lund was staffed primarily with women and we want to explore their work, and commemorate the event by drawing parallels between the work they did and the work you do. The performance will be based on the physical movements that you make during your working day.

The performance will be made and filmed on Friday 29th September and performed at the Storey Institute on Saturday 30th September to a small, live audience.  The film will be shown as part of an installation at Lancaster Museum as part of Light Up Lancaster on 3rd and 4th November. 

No previous performance experience is necessary and any movements will be based around your experiences and capabilities. 

If you would like to participate in the performance and film, find out more, or if you have any questions at all, please get in touch with the project Learning Leader, Steve Fairclough on sjfairclough@hotmail.com or on 07732 366202. Also please pass this information on to any local women you think might be interested in taking part!

 

*as a participant of this project you can also develop your knowledge and understanding of munitions work on the home front, and in particular the important contribution women made to the war effort, through a range of organised talks and visits – just ask Steve for more info*.
