Part of Dancing City
Duration: 45 minutes
Sorry – this event has already happened!
This UK première from French choreographers Eric Lamoureaux and Hela Fattoumi creates a landscape populated by humans and inanimate objects. As the objects, the “oscyls”, wait, it is only the dancers who can bring them to life, in a performance which evolves into a seamlessly integrated world of possibility.
OSCYL Variation 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.
There is step-free access across Canary Wharf.
This will be marked with a flag or sign – please ask a GDIF Volunteer if you’re not sure where to go. There will be some limited seating provided, too.
