It’s been a long summer for Square Peg and Rime. There have been ups and downs and it’s been a lot of hard work, but now looking back over the last seven months it’s been fantastic!
The season’s last performance on Sunday at the Devizes International Street Festival was absolutely lovely, especially as the weather was on our side; the few days beforehand and the day after were all extremely wet, but the glorious sunshine dried out the ground for us and Rime went up without a hitch.
Here’s a little something from the festival organisers – Devizes Outdoor Celebratory Arts:
Square Peg’s show ‘Rime’ was an outstanding highlight of this year’s Devizes International Street Festival in August. Their meticulous attention to detail in all aspects of its preparation and performance and adoption of the highest production standards throughout had implied all along that we were in for something special but the show when it came was a stunner in every respect. Superb dance, song and acrobatics and a clever interpretation of an unlikely choice of theme. Our audience of hundreds stood in the dark and watched it spellbound and were still talking about it days later.
And lastly, it wouldn’t be right to end without saying a huge thank you to everyone who worked with and supported us along the way. This year would not have been possible without each and every one of you:
