Hull UK City of Culture 2017
Thank you to our 197 local performers!
Premiering at International Dance Festival Birmingham 2010 to great acclaim, it was seen by nearly 20,000 people in 2012 on the high streets of the UK and Dublin.
The show gradually emerges over several days from what looks like random incidental 'happenings' on the streets, to a fully-fledged dance performance with live music, engaging with the location and passers-by.
(In)visible Dancing culminates in a thrilling Finale performance that brings together nearly 100 performers, including local dance groups. Passers-by who have learned the Finale routine during the previous days can return to join in with the show as it comes to a thrilling climax in front of an audience of several hundred people.
“Audiences don’t have to seek it out as it happens where they are. It really does have a fantastic impact on the city it is performed in.'
Katherine Woodvine, Kingston upon Thames Arts officer
