Ullapool Dance Festival in conjunction with Macphail Centre presents:

 

HEROES 

Saturday 14th March at 7PM

Prices: £10, £8 conc. and £4 under 16's.
Card payment facilities available.

"Heroes" is a playful aerial and dance theatre show from All or Nothing and Room 2 Manoeuvre which delves into the world of super heroes, celebrity and beyond! In their quirky circus universe, two performers (and their miniature sidekicks) explore what it means to be a hero. The dynamic duo tackle the darker side of life in the spotlight and the pressures of being a role model with a never-ending list of enemies. Are we blinded by celebrity? Or are the ordinary people living extraordinary lives our true heroes? Don't miss this clever caper for both young and old, told through aerial dance theatre and contemporary circus.

Come and join us for a performance with a difference.

VENTOUX

Ventoux is the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France.

It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani – whose drug-fuelled race there in 2000 was the greatest cycling had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these champions who overcame great adversity in tandem, and the mountain that cast them in opposing directions.

20 years on, Ventoux restages the race using breathtaking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking the question – how far will we go to succeed?
