Join a cast of over 150 dancers and musicians as they fill the Tower of London's West Moat in East Wall, an extraordinary outdoor performance inspired by the communities of east London.

Internationally-celebrated director Hofesh Shechter has worked in collaboration with young London-based choreographers, Becky Namgauds, Duwane Taylor, James Finnemore and Joseph Toonga to embrace east London’s diversity and put its rich cultural heritage centre stage, using a rich tapestry of music and dance.

From grime to gospel, krump to contemporary – this mashup of old and new will come together in a large-scale spectacle like no other.

This unique event in the grounds of one of London’s most iconic buildings has been commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces and produced by East London Dance and Hofesh Shechter Company. It is presented by Historic Royal Palaces and LIFT.
