A spectacular performance of music, dance and film set against
the iconic backdrop of Canary Wharf.
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, proudly
supported by Canary Wharf Group plc, worked with over five hundred
people from across the Isle of Dogs and Tower Hamlets in this
exploration of the city. Inspired by contemporary German composer
Heiner Goebbels' seminal work, Surrogate Cities, participants of
all ages and backgrounds collaborated with experienced music and
dance practitioners to explore and celebrate the unique cityscape
in which they live.
Featured young students from Cubitt Town and Shapla Primary
Schools and Mulberry Secondary School for Girls, Trinity Laban's
youth dance groups Get Your Act Together
and Dance Fusion and local community groups including the Isle of
