Everything that rises must dance

Dance Umbrella announces 2018 programme marking the 40th anniversary of London’s Flagship Festival of International Dance.

A compelling celebration of female movement created with more than 200 women from across London, Sasha Milavic Davies’s everything that rises must dance will unfold on Greenwich Peninsula on Saturday 29 September 2pm & 4pm.

At once meditative and mechanical, Sasha Milavic Davies’s everything that rises must dance is a compelling celebration of female movement, incorporating both the everyday and the universal.

Created with more than 200 women from across London this free performance unfolds in two venues around the capital. Rippling with choreography that reproduces the minute movements of daily life while weaving in fragments of folk dance from around the world, the spectacle sets expressive, physical action to an evolving sonic score.

Director and choreographer Sasha Milavic Davies is known for making engrossing large scale work within dance and theatre and here collaborates with composer Lucy Railton. This intriguing project exploring relationships, identity and community receives its world premiere as part of Dance Umbrella 2018. produced by acclaimed Complicité.

Free, no booking required.
