Bridge: An Impossible Performance?

This event has now passed

Saturday 14 September, 8.30pm
Market Place, Grantham
FREE

A group of acrobat engineers attempt to cross the bridge and find it much, much harder than they thought. Gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre and live music, inspired by local people's stories, create a thrilling and moving montage of the courage, compassion and humour needed to bridge a divide. 

South Kesteven District Council and InvestSK welcome Imagineer Productions to Grantham as they host the global premiere of Bridge: An Impossible Performance?

This performance lasts for approximately 50 minutes. It is a standing performance and may have to be edited in the case of adverse weather. 

Inspirations

In 2018 we collected stories from people in Coventry, Grantham and Worcester about their experiences of bridge-building and bridge-burning. These stories inspired Bridge: An Impossible Performance? and all parts of the Bridge project. 

‘You have not truly engaged in reconciliation until your own people feel you have betrayed them’ 
The Very Reverend John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry 

‘You cannot cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water’ 
Rabindranath Tagore
