Taking place in the grounds of one of London’s most iconic buildings, East Wall is the culmination of a three year talent development programme led by Hofesh Shechter Company and East London Dance, working with young choreographers, dancers and community groups. East Wall will be the first major public art event in the Tower of London moat since the Poppies installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red in 2014. This performance follows on from the project’s scratch show East Wall Warm-Up, which marked the closing night of LIFT 2016.
This epic event will weave together a tapestry of music and dance that embraces east London’s diversity and puts its rich cultural heritage centre stage. From grime to gospel, krump to contemporary - this mashup of old and new will come together in a large-scale spectacle like no other.
Cando2 at The Place is proud to be part of this incredible project opportunity and will be performing a piece choreographed by young London-based choreographer Becky Namgauds.
