Dancer returns to home town to perform at SO Festival 2012 in Skegness
A DANCER will be returning to her Skegness roots later this year as she performs at SO Festival 2012.
Daniela B Larsen, 27, will play a key role in outdoor spectacle As the World Tipped, which is the latest act to be announced for the June event.
Taking place at the Festival Car Park in Skegness on Saturday, June 30, the theatre performance features a giant aerial stage suspended over the audience in the night sky.
A powerful tale of ecological crisis, As the World Tipped highlights issues surrounding the climate change debate and is set during the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference.
The performance is directed by Nigel Jamieson, one of the world's leading creators of large-scale outdoor ceremonies and events, who has produced performances for the Sydney Olympic Games and the European City of Culture celebrations in Liverpool.
Speaking about her involvement in the project, Daniela said: "I have been working with Wired Aerial Theatre for the past two and a half years, and in that time have travelled to some amazing places, so it's great news that we are now coming to Skegness.
"My dance career began at my mum's dance school, The Hallway to Dance on Grosvenor Road with whom I performed in a number of shows at the Embassy Theatre, so it's such a delight to be able to come back to my home town and perform in front of all my family and friends.
"It's an amazing project to be involved in and it's such a topical issue that sparks a lot of debate, so I'm proud to be helping to deliver such an important message."
SO Festival 2012 takes place between June 23 and July 1 in Skegness and across East Lindsey.
