This spectacular aerial performance spirals into the air against the panoramic cityscape of London at the top of Greenwich Park hill.

Multi award-winning disabled artist Rodney Bell and critically acclaimed dancer/choreographer Chloe Loftus’ counterweighted duet is a celebration of equality and connection. Representing diverse cultures and experiences, Chloe and Rodney explore our capacity to exist in balance and harmony. Like planets encircling around each other, magnetically pulled by each other’s energy, this UK premiere comes to GDIF direct from Aotearoa (New Zealand).
