Brouhaha ! Yes! Yes! Yes! International Festival Princess Park.
This weekend will explode with an International fantasia of culture, music and physical performance second to none with performances in Princess Park, Stanley Park and Anfield with MDI’s ‘We are the City’ Big Dance Weekend Dance.
From one International Festival at the Hub to another. Immediately after the Accelerated Learning seminar at the Hub, where business executive colleagues warmed to my promotion of Liverpool Culture, especially in the promotion of the Giants. I was catapulted into the opening streets of Liverpool with a parade of Brouhaha. Wow, what a sight of colour, excitement and pulsating energy to promote the city.
Brouhaha International are renowned for putting together spectacular carnivals, arts engagement projects, festivals and community events. This year will be their best!
They have triumphantly promoted the idea that diversity is linked to creativity. They have previously brought over 300 incredible international companies to Liverpool which is one reason why I am so aligned to the International Business Festival 2014 today.
During the Brouhaha Festival, there will be a number of spectacles taking place in different parts of the city on various dates in July, all of which are completely free.
Not to be missed this year and I will be there tomorrow, positioned at the Princess Park Sun Gates, cheering on the 2014 International Carnival, a parade which will wind through the Toxteth tree lined avenues, and finish in Princess Park.
Themed ‘Our Commonwealth’ the carnival will feature over 1000 dazzling costumes and new large scale carnival structures.
At the ‘World in Princess Festival’, as it will be called, attendees can join in with performance work, get stuck into global foods and spend the day at family arts workshops.
The park will be bursting with exciting, new productions both home grown and a haven for International networking.
For one day only, another Festival, the beautiful North Festival will make its way through Stanley Park all the way to the Isla of Gladstone gardens and the magnificent Victorian glass house which will be hosting the stunning international performances.
Be around Lothiar Road Anfield tomorrow when choreographer Willi Dorner will create stunning moving installations and a tapestry of Liverpool life, with an original music score by Tom Rea Smith.
There will be a live parade of the people, associations and organisations that contribute to the City. See how local artists Paul Doyle, Ruth Jones, Jenifer Hale, Leila Chebbi and Jo Ashbridge are working with participants from across the city, such talent!.
See the work of MDI in Liverpool, a dance company that is always vibrant and enthusiastic with very visual dynamic movements.
Their last performances viewed by me at the Newsham Park Festival a few weeks ago was very impressive and energetic. Love them!
Take your pick of the carnival atmosphere here in Liverpool this weekend and enjoy this truly global city!
