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

Presented By Vloeistof


2 & 3 September | 1.30pm & 6.45pm | Royal Docks

Duration: 35mins

What to Expect: Dance


Four people fight for survival on the rooftop of a submerged house.  

Inspired by the North Sea Flood of 1953, this urgent and timely performance brings a devastating historical disaster up to date in the face of rising sea water levels and the destructive effects of global warming.  

This production, in which the dramatic predicament of people clinging on desperately for their lives, shines a light on our central dilemma of denial, at a time when the climate change clock continues to count down.    

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