GDIF 2024 | London’s free, annual outdoor performing arts festival 23 August-8 September 2024

Presented By BANDALOOP


Duration: 20 mins

Free and unticketed, just show up!

Look up in wonder, as one of the world’s most extraordinary vertical dance companies present this breathtaking performance on the iconic façade of Wren’s masterpiece, St Paul’s Cathedral. 

An enduring symbol of hope for Londoners for more than 300 years, director Melecio Estrella has taken inspiration from the inscription Resurgam (I shall rise), carved onto the south portico of the cathedral, to create this awe-inspiring performance, which explores what it takes to be optimistic in challenging times. 

This event took place at Greenwich+Docklands International Festival 2023 and has passed.
