I was wandering somewhere (the toilets I think) when a performance erupted right next to me. When this sort of thing happens it goes some way towards justifying all the time I spend lugging the camera around!
Ponydance come from Ireland and don't seem to take themselves too seriously, though their dance skills are genuine. They seem to like performing in unexpected places - betting shop, grocers - this video gives some idea.
The music for their performance at Womadelaide (which was listed as 'roving', so you just had to get lucky to see it) was a medley of cheesy 80's songs and the tracksuits were matching.
This lovely solo was backed by Bonnie Tyler's 'Total Eclipse of the Heart'. Of course.
