Exciting summer programme from Greenwich Dance


Greenwich Dance, which works in partnership with Trinity Laban to cement South East London as an international dance hub, will launch its summer dance festival, Greenwich Dances, on 22 May 2015.

Now in its fifth year as part of the Royal Greenwich Festivals, Greenwich Dances 2015 (22-30 May) revolves around a collection of inspirational dance performances, free outdoor events and opportunities to meet the artists involved.

Trinity Laban alumnus Luca Silvestrini’s company Protein kick off the festival with its sell out hit, Border Tales, which comments on identity and multicultural living in the UK based on the lives of its outstanding international cast.

The programme also includes the London premiere of performative installation work fitting by Cie Willi Dorner, offering spectators the opportunity to explore a different perspective of Greenwich.

Having completed a production residency at The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership's Performance Laboratory, dance company Moxie Brawl is currently delivering free workshops to primary schools across Greenwich based on its new work Windibops. An excerpt of this exciting performance will be presented at Greenwich Dance's Family Cabaret Uncovered, before the finished show comes to the Laban Theatre stage in Spring 2016.

Concluding the festival activity, Lila Dance will present its intimate dance experience The Deluge at The Borough Hall in Greenwich.

Those looking to delve a little deeper can also join Greenwich Dance for the chance to Lunch with Luca, join Protein for Professional Class and Meet the fitting performers.
