Join us to look back on this summer’s LANGUAGE performance and hear all about POWER, coming up next year.
Did you take part in the celebratory performance project LANGUAGE? Maybe you wanted to but couldn’t, perhaps you missed the show, or you’re simply interested in what it was all about.
This relaxed get-together, with drinks and nibbles, is a chance for participants, audience and staff to catch up, and for anyone curious to hear about next year’s project POWER.
Behind the scenes footage, photography from the sessions and extracts from the performance itself will be playing on a loop in our Library, so feel free to dip in and out as you please.
What was LANGUAGE?
In July 2022, we invited those with a strong connection to Elephant and Castle to create a new dance performance with us. The theme was LANGUAGE – exploring different dance styles and languages, moving to express ourselves, the power of communication and the fun and frustration that comes with it.
A final celebratory performance was the culmination of twelve dance sessions with 5 guest artists, led by Juan Ayala and SDS’ Co-Artistic Director Annie Pui Ling Lok. Some of the 20 performers involved attended across the month, others joined us in the very last week – many of us met each other on the day of the performance!
