Part of Greenwich Fair
22 - 23 June
Duration: 35 minutes
Type: Circus, Dance
Exploring what happens when one body is carried by another, three women move and lift each other in search of a perfect balance. Mixing dance, theatre and circus, Lifted dissects and celebrates the art of collaboration, teaming up with three outstanding guest choreographers, Yi-Chun Liu, Arthur Barnard Bazin and Gary Clarke.
Lifted will be performed as part of Greenwich Fair, GDIF’s two-day “festival within a festival” from 21-23 June, bringing together UK and international street arts companies to Greenwich Town Centre in a fun-filled, family-friendly extravaganza.
There is step-free access to the performance location in Cutty Sark Gardens. The most direct route is from the north side of Cutty Sark Gardens, near the Foot Tunnel. Or else you can access the performance level at the entrance to Cutty Sark Gardens from Greenwich Church Street (near M&S and the Gipsy Moth Pub).
This area will be marked with a flag or sign and will have limited seating – please ask a GDIF Volunteer if you’re not sure where to go.
