Wanted: Ballerinas


May 11, 2011

If you happen to be walking along the old railway track on the Saturday afternoon at this year’s Festival you might be drawn towards the curiously compelling sound of the harp, drums, glockenspiels, piano and even a rainstick that make up the Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble, who’ll be performing on the West Holts stage.

In their surreal-but-wonderful video for ‘Bop’, the group show a stunning collaboration with a small company of ballerinas (the ballerinas arrive at 5m17s). And they’d like to do similar at Glastonbury this year.

So, the BBF Ensemble are offering ballerinas of the world the chance to perform their own choreographed performance at Glastonbury 2011. All they have to do is send in a video of their vision and be better than all the other contenders. The winners will get passes, backstage camping and travel expenses. For more information and details on how to apply, visit the competition webpage: brandtbrauerfrick-youmakemereal.com/ballerina/. You have until 23rd May to get you entry in.

Meanwhile, if you’re not a ballerina, you can check out some BBF sonic treats at soundcloud.com/brandtbrauerfrick/sets.
