Grief Moves by The Fandangoe Kid and The Loss Project
Dance out your grief! From bereavement to break ups to climate grief to political angst, all experiences of loss and forms of grief are welcome here!
London based creatives The Fandangoe Kid and The Loss Project bring their joint venture Grief Moves tour to Good Grief Weston.
Touring throughout 2023, Grief Moves shares the joy and hope of the acclaimed Fandangoe DISCOTECA installation and the highly successful Grief Raves with communities across the UK and beyond. A Grief Rave brings people together through music, inviting the public to come and play songs that remind them of those they have loved and lost. Grief Moves unites the expertise of Annie, a multidisciplinary artist AKA The Fandangoe Kid, and Carly, AKA The Loss Project, who will create a safe space filled with love, joy and hope.
Join us on our dance floor in Weston to shake out your grief, releasing climate, political, or socio-economic angst with the space to collectively remember the people we love who have died.
Please bring songs to play as an act of remembrance or that you want to shake everything out to, feeling the joyful vibes of moving together. We can’t wait to hear your stories and put your tunes out into the world.
THE FANDANGOE KID has several permanent installations in London and her work has been documented by Channel 4, BBC, Creative Review and BBC World Service. Her made to wear pieces have appeared at the BAFTAs and inside Vogue Italia and her debut film Into Your Light was screened at Tate Modern and on Manhattan Bridge.
The Loss Project, founded by Carly Attridge, works with communities across the UK and beyond. We support communities with grief and loss in all its forms, whether loss of loved ones, health, community, connection, jobs, relationships etc. We use creative practice, movement, and nature as ways to help people to acknowledge, explore and process their experiences and support wellbeing. We’re on a mission to challenge the status quo and to host life affirming spaces that give people the tools and confidence to journey through grief. Our expansive work includes on and offline programmes, training and workshops, and creative projects, such as our work with The Fandangoe Kid. The Loss Project was recognised for its work during the pandemic in the Social Enterprise UK Roll of Honours, and Carly was included in the UMI Social Entrepreneurship Index Awards 2022. We’re delighted to be continuing our collaboration, on our joint venture with Grief Raves, part of the Grief Moves tour. www.thelossproject.com
