Bangor Mail - - YOUR GUIDE -

LLAWN03, Llan­dudno Arts Week­end, is cel­e­brat­ing its third year with an ar­ray of events.

Start­ing this Fri­day, Septem­ber 18, Llan­dudno will be im­mersed in the com­pletely free arts fes­ti­val. The Arts Week­end en­com­passes a wide range of con­tem­po­rary arts, show­cas­ing a vi­brant mix of dance, film, mu­sic, per­for­mance and art in­stal­la­tions.

Cu­ra­tor Marc Rees has de­vised a pro­gramme that cel­e­brates Llan­dudno’s past, present and fu­ture with a Vic­to­rian twist.

Repli­cas of Vic­to­rian bathing ma­chines will hug the shore­line, oc­cu­pied by an eclec­tic mix of artists.

Amongst per­form­ers will be The Kitsch n’ Sync dance col­lec­tive, a pair of Vic­to­rian lady trav­ellers, and Div­ina & Dym­phna’s Day-glo Tour will pay ex­trav­a­gant homage to the town’s lost the­atres.

In­side the dis­used Taber­na­cle, renowned chore­og­ra­pher Jonathan Bur­rows and com­poser Mat­teo Far­gion will per­form two pieces.

The or­gan­is­ers are bring­ing an in­ter­na­tional flavour to LLAWN this year. Guillermo We­ick­ert and Maria Cabeza de Vaca Acro­jou’s spell-bind­ing Wheel House stage will tra­verse the town. On the prom­e­nade, chil­dren will be en­tranced by the beau­ti­ful con­struc­tions of the Cata­lan group Katakrak.

There will be an open air screen­ing of the clas­sic Close En­coun­ters of the Third Kind at the Great Orme’s ski slope. The event is free-of-charge but tick­ets are es­sen­tial. De­tails at llawn.org
