North Wall Arts Centre

The North Wall is an Art Centre in Oxford that has been created for the benefit of emerging artists across a range of disciplines. Based on the campus of St Edwards School, its core mission is educational and through its outreach work it aims to bring aspiring artists from across the nation together with cutting edge Theatre, Dance, Film and Music professionals. It seeks to break down barriers to both participation and careers in the arts. It is also a valued resource for the local and wider Oxfordshire community.

Since we opened to the public in 2007, we have programmed a diverse range of work such as comediens Sarah Millican, John Bishop, and Rhod Gilbert, and musicans Camille O’Sullivan, John Tavener, The Unthanks, and Spiers & Boden.

The North Wall - Martin Green: The Portal - April 17 - 19th

Find yourself right in the middle of an immersive world, from ancient rite to banging club.

What has changed in 4,000 years of dance culture?

It’s May Day 1988, the Second Summer of Love. Martin Green (fearless inventor and accordion player in esteemed folk trio Lau)  is nine years old and morris dancing at dawn while the ravers are still going in the next field.

What’s the difference? What’s the same?

Martin Green leads us through a mind-altering, bespoke audience experience that asks if trance state is actually part of the culture of these islands – have we forgotten it? Or denied it? Pass through The Portal and you will become part of this beautiful and exhilarating world of music, movement and ritual.

There ain’t no party like an experimental morris dance theatrical rave party.

Co-commissioned by OCM and the North Wall Arts Centre and Southbank Centre
