Sorry – this event has already happened!

Fusing movement and music in a production created around a uniquely engineered, 3.5m high percussion wheel, this visceral production integrates rhythmic intensity and “heart in the mouth choreography.

PULSE! 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.

Viewing Area

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.

Audio Description
