FEAR Performance Sat 22 Jun 2024, 5pm - 6pm + afterparty

Join us for the performance of FEAR, the celebratory finale of a series of free community workshops.

FEAR brings together participants from our communities to create a performance together. The theme is FEAR –  the fear of the unknown, the fear of our space or comfort being threatened, and how fear can controls us. Together we will be asking how we can challenge fear through support and trust in one another.

Participants will have joined our Co-Artistic Director Annie Pui Ling Lok, Juan Ayala, Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot and Anna Alvarez over nine workshops in the two (and a bit) weeks leading up to the performance. They will have worked with movement influenced by contemporary dance, theatre-making, Argentine tango, Aikido and Contact Improvisation. For many it could be their first time performing. 

It’s going to be an open, exciting and collaborative process, and there is a lot we don’t know yet. Expect a performance + free post-show pizza, cheap drinks and chat.

FEAR is the third of four performance projects – LANGUAGE, POWER, FEAR, EMOTION – made in Elephant and Castle. Find out more here.

Audiences say…

“I love the values that permeate this project – joy, community, inclusion and how dance is such an amazing facilitator to imbue a space and neighbourhood with that!” 

“It was really refreshing to see people dance because they love it. It made me very happy to see the performers so happy and enjoying themselves!”

“I loved the diversity of those performing. It was as if the many breathed one breath … it was a body with many arms and it was as beautiful in movement.”
