Sorry – this event has already happened!

Disentangling human relationships and misunderstandings, this innovative contemporary tap performance integrates movement and sound on a journey of connections and near misses. Whilst playing homage to the roots of tap, Oscillate provides a very 21st century perspective on moments of urban isolation and togetherness.

OSCiLLATE 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.
