‘Gloves on’!

Strike a Light has been job shadowing Ragroof Theatre this summer in the making of their new production about boxing ‘Gloves On’, thanks to an Arts Council bursary. It’s a wonderful blend of oral reminiscence, history of boxing clubs and great performances set in a boxing ring, which changes with each performance according to the venue. The production with 5 performers, has been touring all over the place and some notable shows were set outside at the Paradise Gardens festival as well as in a boxing club in Canning Town, London, where the smell of sweat and the ambience made for an electrifying show promenading the audience through the whole venue.

La Merce festival hits Barcelona!

Strike a Light is in Barcelona this week to visit La Merce festival, a Catalan street arts festival which begins on 23rd September until Monday 27th September.

Strike a Light has a bursary from Arts Council of England to research events of this kind and how they are put together as well as networking with artists, acts and events in Europe to encourage the creation of more collabaration between events and furthering street arts festivals in the UK.
