East Wall: Journey to the Tower
9th July 2018
Our final #LIFT2018 show, East Wall, sees along with 150 performers storm the Tower of London in a spectacular collision of music and dance this summer and is 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.
We’ll be documenting the journey right from the auditions all the way to the performance. Watch the first few episodes below:
In the first episode, we meet the four choreographers Becky Namguads, Duwane Taylor, James Finnemore and Joseph Toonga and learn a bit more about their dance backgrounds.
In episode two, we go behind the scenes during the auditions.
In episode three, we take a sneak peek at the rehearsals, hear from director Hofesh Shechter and find out more about the design process from our costume design partners, London College of Fashion.
