WELCOME Welcome to the Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts. It’s been 10 years since we began an international odyssey to establish Great Yarmouth as a mecca for the circus and street arts world and to bring audiences from across the country to enjoy all that this little corner of our coastline has to offer. The enthusiasm does not dim after a decade and this year we see another line-up of incredible acts. We welcome UK premieres from, amongst others, Barcelona’s Vavel Circus (p23) and France’s Compagnie 2.1 (p9). Our membership of the Without Walls Consortium has helped develop two new shows by Yarmouth based artists, Dizzy O’Dare (p10) and Matthew Harrison (p17). We’ve been leading Coasters, a three year Arts Council funded national project to reimagine how audiences see coastal towns. The project brings us several shows including an exciting collaborative piece that forms our Saturday night headline show – Sense of Unity (p22). Around 100 artists from at least ten nations join us this year. We’ve a live music stage, a new family zone, and a programme of shows and workshops at our home, The Drill House. Our thanks, as always go to those who’ve helped fund the festival, particularly Arts Council England, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Greater Yarmouth Tourism & Business Improvement District. Here’s to another 10 years! Joe Mackintosh, Artistic Director Below: Joe at the Drill House during the construction of Matthew Harrison’s The Actual Reality Arcade.

HOW TO DO

OUT THERE

Food & drink From a healthy smoothie to a delicious pint of Lacons ale, fine local produce to international street food, Out There has it all. We’re here to help

A tasty pint

Laid end to end, there’s almost 100 hours of free entertainment over the weekend and so much to see and do.

For the second year, Great Yarmouth brewer Lacons will create a festival ale. Pick up a pint at the Drill House or the food village.

You’ll spot our Festival Hosts around the park and at the Info Points. They’ll help with enquiries, point you in the right direction and give you some festival tips. Some will also be carrying out our festival evaluation – a questionnaire that helps us measure the success of the festival and tell us a little bit about our audiences. This is vitally important and helps prove our case to funders, ensuring the festival for future years. Please do complete an evaluation if you’re asked. If you’re here with children, we recommend you write your phone number on their arm. If you lose your child, report to one of the Info Points straight away while we locate them.

Out There to a tee!

Young talent on the stage

Got a graphic talent? To celebrate the 10th Out There Festival, we’ve launched The Great Out There T-Shirt Design Competition. Come up with an amazing design and you could see it immortalised in the official 2017 festival t-shirt. There’s prizes galore for the winning artists too!

Drillaz Circus School is open to young people, aged 8-18yrs. Each year we host a Summer School where new and existing members can come along, learn new skills and work towards a performance at the festival. Led by Dizzy O’Dare and professionals from Mexico’s Colectivo en breve, The Drillaz hard work culminates in a performance called In Dreams, which you can catch on Sunday at the festival – see p15.

FOR INFO & BOOKING Siobhan on 01493 745458, siobhan@seachangearts.org.uk

SEACHANGE & DRILL HOUSE

Beyond Out There The Out There Festival is just one of many projects and activities SeaChange is involved in throughout the year.

Our ambition is to build Great Yarmouth as a UK circus capital, supporting artists to develop their work here, providing access to great art and entertainment for as many people as possible and supporting local tourism and cultural initiatives.

Drill House 150

Without Walls

Coasters

Working with schools, Time & Tide Museum and historians, Drill House 150 is a Heritage Lottery supported project to celebrate and explore our Grade II listed home, in its 150th year. Working with the community, we’ll build a fascinating picture of the multi-use history of this fine heritage building.

A member of the Without Walls Consortium, SeaChange collaborate with leading UK outdoor arts festivals to promote excellence and to commission new work. Each year Without Walls announce a number of new commissions, amongst which were two for Great Yarmouth artists in 2017.

Coasters is a major national project, supported by Arts Council England and led by SeaChange. It seeks to transform perceptions of coastal towns as exciting, vibrant cultural destinations by touring world-class circus and street arts to these locations, supporting the development of events and festivals and sharing knowledge with other organisations, ultimately driving more people to visit our coastal towns.

38

A small team, we have core funding from Arts Council England and Great Yarmouth Borough Council. Using their support, we’re able to generate new funding and investment into Great Yarmouth to further these ambitions.
