GDIF is turning 25!
And we’ve got a spectacular Opening Night planned to help us celebrate, kick-starting an ambitious two-week programme of outdoor arts, theatre, dance, and installations.
The festival will open in Woolwich Town Centre with the UK première of a new production by French performance company Gratte Ciel, featuring a gigantic suspended dreamcatcher, aerial performance, 360-degree pyrotechnics and the words and contributions of Woolwich-based community and cultural groups, curated by Booker Prize winner and Woolwich Laureate Bernardine Evaristo and poet and founder of RevolYOUtion London, Rasheeda Page-Muir.
Supported by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, GDIF’s Opening Night, entitled Woolwich Rising, will take place on 19 June in Woolwich Town Centre, kick-starting an ambitious two-week programme of outdoor arts, theatre and spectacle to mark our 25th anniversary.
The festival will run from 19 June – 4 July 2020 and features local, national and international artists with participants and audiences in public spaces across Royal Greenwich, the City of London, Tower Hamlets, Canary Wharf, Royal Docks and Thamesmead.
