  • East Wall


    Hofesh Shechter Company and East London Dance

    Tower of London

    'One of the British dance scene's hottest properties, the creator of works that are full of raw, visceral energy, set to blasting percussive scores'

    New York Times on Hofesh Shechter

    Come and storm the Tower of London along with 150 performers for a spectacular collision of music and dance this summer. Bringing together dance styles from across London and fuelled by rousing music from The Band of the Irish Guards, contemporary a cappella vocal group The Gold Vocal Collective, rock musicians, strings and vocalists and the rebellious history of the site itself, East Wall is the Tower’s first large-scale artistic presentation since the award-winning Poppies installation.

    Directed by the internationally-celebrated artist and choreographer Hofesh Shechter, East Wall invites you to discover dynamic new dance created by Becky Namgauds, Duwane Taylor, James Finnemore and Joseph Toonga, four of London’s most exciting young choreographers.

    From grime to gospel, krump to contemporary, this epic production will indulge your senses in a tapestry of music and dance that celebrates East London’s diversity and puts its rich cultural heritage centre stage.

    Climb into the moat to witness this summer’s biggest dance spectacular and experience the thrill of the new, as traditions are turned on their heads and remixed in bold, unique and life affirming ways.

    Book now to spend an unforgettable summer night in a family festival atmosphere. Come and experience the history of London’s most iconic building brought to breath-taking life by some of the city’s most exciting artists.

    Make an evening of it! The Tower of London will be open from 6pm and there will be a range of delicious food and drink available from stalls both ‘In the Moat’ and ‘On the Hill’. Please note that stalls serving the ‘On The Hill’ ticket holders will only serve non-alcoholic drinks.
