The Original Spinners are a clown inspired dance improvisation collective. We are based in Bristol and were founded in early 2010 by Rachael Smith-James, a community dance artist. We have improvised with bands, created evenings/performances of dance and play and appeared and disappeared in a blink of an eye with our happenings. We have performed at many bars, weddings, conferences and festivals, including Colston Hall, Croissant Neuf, Green Man and Shambala. Our work is very much about getting people involved in dancing and playing so our performances have often been preceded by a workshop where we teach the ‘Happening’ and then take participants out to perform with us. Due to the nature of what we do we are able to offer a wide range of performance options and are more than happy to talk about how we can adapt our performances to meet the needs of any event.
