Sunday, 29th May
Back by popular demand and extending their series of May sessions across the area, Battersea-based E33 Dance Company showcase their latest choreography entitled: ‘Used to Be…’ by up-and-coming choreographer Rick Fernandes.
Local Nine Elms artist, Daria Hass will be running arts and mindfulness workshops alongside the performances to complement the choreography and floral installation, using the symbolism of butterfly metamorphosis to gently encourage the audience to consider how change can be challenging, but also life-giving and renewing.
The performances and workshops are suitable for all age groups.
E33 Dance Company were selected by the Nine Elms community as part of this year’s ‘Movement and Metamorphosis – Make Art in Nine Elms’ event programme
Merchants Way is two minutes walk from Nine Elms Tube Station.
