The Out There Festival of International Street Arts & Circus Entertainment returned to the streets of Great Yarmouth for the eighth time over the weekend of Friday 18 September through to Sunday 20 September 2015 and the sun shone all weekend.
Produced by SeaChange Arts, Out There blends major international acts and local artists with the opportunity for everyone to try their hand in a range of crazy activities. The 2015 festival showcased acts from all over Europe with stunning acrobatics, light shows, music, pyrotechnics and bizarre antics - it was totally 'Out There'.
This year’s big outdoor headline show was Tambours de la Muerte (Drums of Death), by renowned French company Transe Express. A processional performance, based on the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead and featuring gigantic skeleton puppets, stilt walkers and masked drummers, took to the night-time streets for a spectacular show full of acrobatics, dance, music, flames and fireworks.
Festival favourites Dizzy O Dare were back with Body of Wires, their new wire walking show, produced by Seachange. Belgium’s Full Stop Acrobatic Theatre explored masculinity and femininity in Outside the Boxm, a show combining circus, dance and theatre. The crazy, anarchic clowning of a dysfunctional family were celebrated in The Hogwallops by Lost in Translation Circus, Seachange’s own resident company.
Beautiful St George's Park and the town centre's vibrant Market Place were the main settings for the weekend programme of events, offering visitors unique and thrilling entertainment, free of charge.
