Gog Magog Molly
About Gog Magog Molly
Come and try out one of the most exciting, inventive and whacky dance forms in England with the multicoloured menaces of the Fens. We are looking for musicians as well! Summary: Gog Magog Molly Workshop. 8pm-10pm Every Tuesday Venue: St Andrews Street Baptist Church (http://goo.gl/maps/lNzlf) See concert details for our next dance-out, and experience the madness of our music and dance! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT2Kwd_uZYY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xH4amyp5Sw0 or go to our website and see the photos (http://www.gogmagogmolly.org.uk/) Therefore Tuesday evenings will give you the chance to learn a Molly dance or two, and watch a dance or two as well from some Gogs and play with our Molly musicians! Any queries - email [email protected] History of Molly - It was originally danced every January by disguised plough boys, when the fields were too frozen to plough, and originally designed to terrorise the landowners (and has been banned by law twice). Our cross-dressing costume presents a kaleidoscope of colour right up to (and beyond!) our brightly-painted faces. We retain some interpretations of the traditional dances but have drawn on a range of other inspirations, including Harry Potter, a one-way system, a doctoral thesis, local punting hazards, and we even have an Oompa Loompa dance! Map for St Andrews Street Baptist Church - http://goo.gl/maps/lNzlf - When looking at the church, there is an alleyway to the right hand side of it, where there will be people from Gog Magog Molly there who will let you in. If you are late, ring the doorbell to be let in.
