FOUR dancing men equipped with a lifeguard's tower and a miniature band will set off from Lynmouth tomorrow (Thursday, July 3) as they bid to twinkle toes their way across the shores of Devon.The unique Inhale and Hold ongoing outdoor performance by the Stacked Wonky company has been commissioned by Dance in Devon, with support from the county council.The aim is to cross the landscape via a series of unusual waterside locations such as the seashore, lidos and rivers - and dance artist Sarah Shorten and her company want as many local people as possible to turn out and join them in a step or three.The dancers will be setting off from the Manor in Lynmouth tomorrow at 12.30pm and can also be seen at Wildersmouth Beach next to the Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe at 5.30pm.They arrive at the Grand Western Canal Country Park in Tiverton at 1.30pm on Friday, then by the river at Hatherleigh Community Centre at 7pm.Sarah has created the "portable" performance in homage to John Cheever's The Swimmer and it will demand great stamina and perseverance from its four participants.The event is part of the Big dance campaign, which aims to showcase innovative and unusual dance across the country from July 5-13, aiming to encourage as much public participation as possible.
