FEAR Workshops Thu 6 Jun – Sat 22 Jun 2024

A community performance project in Elephant and Castle for all ages and experience.

Do you love to dance and move?  
Do you want to meet new people?
Do you want to perform? 

Join us for FEAR, a series of free workshops with a final celebratory performance. FEAR is the third of four performance projects – LANGUAGE, POWER, FEAR, EMOTION – made in Elephant and Castle. Check out what we got up to in previous projects here.

The theme for this year’s performance is FEAR: we will be exploring the fear of the unknown, the fear of our space or comfort being threatened, and how fear can controls us. Working together, we’ll ask how we can challenge fear through support and trust in one another.

Annie Pui Ling Lok and Juan Ayala will lead the workshops in collaboration with guest artist Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot. The workshops will be influenced by these artist’s different interests and backgrounds – which include contemporary dance, theatre-making, Argentine tango, Aikido and Contact Improvisation.


It’s FREE to take part and no experience is necessary, but enthusiasm is essential.
