Sizzling street event combines dance styles

SHEFFIELD’s streets will come alive with a brand new performance event that will showcase dance, music, comedy, street acts and poetry tomorrow (Friday, June 3).

The Sheffield Sizzler features performances from Hype Dance Group, Sheffield Hallam Capoeira Society, cabaret artist Madame Zucchini and French rapper Soulman, starting at 9pm.

Taking place in a variety of areas in and around the venue, the free event will use Crucible Corner, Tudor Square and the Crucible Theatre as performance spaces.

Sheffield Theatres’ Creative Producer Andrew Loretto said: “I’m thrilled that we are staging the first Sheffield Sizzler this June.

“This is a great chance for audiences to experience new artists and work that they may not normally get the chance to see.

“Similarly, it’s a wonderful opportunity for local performers from all across Sheffield to showcase their work to their local community.

“At Sheffield Theatres we’re keen to encourage and develop new work of all forms from up and coming artists.”
