Shobana Jeyasingh Dance: Fluid Boundaries
Fri 14 June, 12.30-12.45pm & 1.30-1.45pm
Working with professional dancers, architects and the local community, leading British contemporary dance company, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and architecture practice, ft’work, explore the intricacies and architecture of Guy’s Courtyard at King’s College London in London Bridge. Through dance and movement they are taking over the space to explore complex physical, social and cultural boundaries. Participants are invited to join the community ensemble during their lunch hour to challenge perceptions about a space they see and walk through every day. Fluid Boundaries is a collaboration with ft’work for the London Festival of Architecture.
The project will be overseen by Shobana and architect Clare Richards, the founder of ft’work. Participants from Oaklands School and Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets and Green Candle Dance Company will work closely with company dancers and ft’work architects to create two inter-generational, site-responsive dance works.
ft’work is a not-for-profit architectural practice committed to creating thriving communities and ensuring that social principles are adopted as a fundamental component of good design and development.
Fluid Boundaries is part of the London Festival of Architecture 2019 programme. #LFA2019
