Flying Down to Rio at Sacred Festival, Chelsea Theatre

Experience Fred and Ginger ‘Doing the Carioca’, and indulge your secret love of samba-kitsch at the Copacabana with Barry Manilow. Come to a carnival in a closet, visit the Michael Jackson shrine, and explore your fantasy self at the pound-store fancy dress stall.

Expect the vintage sounds of the dancehalls of Rio, sugar-cane caipirinhas, and plenty of opportunities to join the dance.

Flying Down to Rio is an idiosyncratic response to a real and imagined Rio, as filtered through the lens of Hollywood film and popular culture. An interactive performance & installation piece in various spaces at Chelsea Theatre over two hours – with a late-night license and South American cocktails on sale! Performed by Dorothy Max Prior and Matthew Blacklock, with additional artistic input from Isobel Smith, Foz Foster, Rosie Powell, and Natasha Nixon. Developed with in-kind support from Aurelius Arts and The Basement Brighton.

Love Dorothy Max xx

Behind the Moon, Beyond the Rain

Dorothy’s Shoes

Behind the Moon, Beyond the Rain

Dorothy: Now, which way do we go?

Scarecrow: Pardon me, this way is a very nice way…

Behind the Moon, Beyond the Rain is a quest, not to find the Wizard but to engender a heartfelt appreciation of what we’ve got – right here, right now – as we journey together. It will, naturally, involve a fairytale heroine, singing, dancing, courage, brains, and making new friends along the way. Good shoes are essential!

Free – book by email on:

Wednesday 14 September, 3pm
