MAPS – work in progress performance, at King’s Arts and Humanities Festival


, ,

9 October, 20:00 — 21:00

MAPS is a performance dance piece considering the world map through its constantly changing nature, as a movable image and a portrait of how globalisation and freedom of information have broken our understanding of borders. Three dancers and a live musician bring the world map to life in a continuous, culturally mixed, rhythmic groove.

Our Dr Sarah Fine worked as academic adviser for this peace, and is warmly inviting us to attend. There will be a Q&A session after the dance, with her, Sivan Rubinstein (the choreographer), and Christina Elliot (Senior Producer at The Place in King’s Cross).
