 Welcome to Performing Earth;

Performing Earth is a professionally run performance project from Wakefield, England, led by actor Daniel Walker. Daniel trained as a professional actor at Drama Studio London before going on to create work that received acclaim worldwide.

Performing Earth aims to increase awareness in the power of performance through workshops and in staged productions, both in the UK and around the rest of the world. The project has just been working in Bangkok on a series of workshops and performances and is now doing some work at the new Performing Earth Arts Centre in the Wakefield area. 


  'In performance, there is no such thing as a rich or poor country, every country is rich in culture...' - Performing Earth

The belief is that every individual, in any corner of the globe, has the right to perform. Workshops have been held in large theatres, at festivals, in International Schools and a whole host of other places. Performing Earth aims to travel far and wide, with shows created by the project itself aswell as the people it meets on the way. The project is constantly expanding and evolving, with recent work including visits to South Korea, Thailand, Poland, Mexico, USA, China. The project also appeared at the European Capital Of Culture 2011 in Tallinn, Estonia.

 

 GRAND OPENING NIGHT: PERFORMING EARTH ARTS CENTRE

The new ‘Performing Earth Arts Centre’ in Thornhill Edge opened on Saturday 23rd November for the grand opening night. The night was a great success with live theatre performances and live signed rock band Morain providing the entertainment. In addition to this Dewsbury TV covered the whole event and gave a presentation of their work to the audience. Incidentally there were six different nationalities represented in the attendees, with audience members from the U.K., Belgium, Spain, Poland, Turkey and the Czech Republic. This added to the international feel to the event. The next  night at the arts centre, which is located on Albion Road, was for ‘The Christmas Party Night’, where Skelmanthorpe/Gawthorpe Brass Band Players and acoustic guitarist Chris Fox were among others  on the bill. The evening was on Monday 23rd December. The latest event was held on Friday 28th October, named 'Leap Year Live', with live theatre alongside musician Tom Smith and media presenter Michael McGougan, for which the press release is pictured below. The centre is also available as rehearsal space and for youth education groups. Anyone wanting a space for a creative activity is encouraged to email; info@performingearth.com
