Presented By Patrick Ziza Dance


Part of Dance by Design: Greenwich Peninsula

28 & 29 August, 1.30pm & 6.30pm

Duration: 20 mins

What to Expect: Make some noise


Famed for their reinvention of fashion, to create a style uniquely their own, the ‘Sapeurs’ of Brazzaville and Kinshasa provide the inspiration for this dance celebration of African style and cool. Speaking of empowerment, identity and resilience, Dandyism is a timely, flamboyant and defiantly joyous work from Patrick Ziza Dance.

Notes for Audience

This is a movement piece with a moment of a song performed in Portuguese which compliments the movement but isn’t intrinsic to the understanding of the piece.

This is a fun filled show where audiences may make noise and are encouraged to engage.

Where to find it

Dandyism will be performed at The Tide, Greenwich Peninsula, SE10 0ES.
