East Wall

Wed 18 - Sun 22 July

East Wall at the Tower of London will see a cast of over 150 dancers and musicians fill the moat of one of London’s most iconic buildings for an extraordinary outdoor performance, inspired by the stories of the communities that have grown up around the Tower.

This dance and music spectacle is directed by the internationally-celebrated Hofesh Shechter in collaboration with four brilliant young choreographers, Becky Namgauds, Duwane Taylor, James Finnemore and Joseph Toonga.  From grime to gospel, krump to contemporary this epic event will weave together a tapestry of music and dance that embraces east London’s diversity and puts its rich cultural heritage centre stage.

East Wall is the culmination of a four year talent development programme led by Hofesh Shechter Company and East London Dance, working with young choreographers, dancers and community groups. It will be the first major public art event in the Tower of London moat since the Poppies installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red in 2014. This performance follows on from the project’s scratch performance East Wall Warm-Up, which marked the closing night of LIFT 2016.
