The Seafarers - A huge success!

On 27 and 28 June, Stopgap Dance Company co-produced a large scale outdoor show The Seafarers with Portsmouth Festivities. The production involved 10 Stopgap Dancers, 60 members of the community and the acclaimed folk-rock band Moulettes, who came fresh from their gig at Glasto! The project had a real impact on everyone involved, and here is what's gone on plus a full-length video!
