9 Minutes

Part of Dancing City

Duration: 27 minutes

Type: Circus, Dance, Music


Sorry – this event has already happened!

Jorge Crecis’ work is renowned for merging athleticism with the compelling visuals of an art installation. In these three pieces, he movingly explores what it is to be alive, encompassing the extremes of joy and despair. Fusing contemporary dance, spoken word, circus and music, each short performance imagines the last 9 minutes of life, in ways which are, in turn, celebratory, thought provoking and nostalgic.

9 Minutes will be performed as part of Dancing City, London’s favourite outdoor dance event that showcases a dazzling array of performances from the UK and beyond in the parks, piazzas and public spaces of Canary Wharf.
