IT’S NOT strictly dance, nor theatre, nor circus-performing, nor parkour (free-running) – but an exciting new show visiting the Western Isles this month combines all of these elements as JAMP mixes it up to deliver a performance that’s mischievous, playful, tough and fearless.

JAMP is about exploration and spectacle using just the body and surrounds in a new performance style suitable for all the family and drawing on parkour, acrobatics, dance, stunts, gymnastics, breakdance and physical theatre.

The show will perform in Uig Community Centre (April 27th) and Sir E School School (April 28th), and the team will also be holding a JAMP Dance and Circus workshop at Ravenspoint on April 26th.
