    'DAN CANHAM’S FRESH AND DELICIOUSLY CONVINCING MASHUP OF LILTING TRADITIONAL DANCE AND PERCUSSIVE POPPING AND LOCKING SUCCEEDS IN CELEBRATORY STYLE'

    The Evening Standard

    Tonight we come together, to look each other in the eye and dance.
    We have time on our side and we’re making a space to call our own.

    Made in collaboration with an extraordinary group of young performers SESSION is a battle cry and a love song, celebrating community, youth and belonging.

    In this explosive outdoor gathering Still House join forces with Tottenham’s Steppaz Performing Arts Academy and North London’s Afrobeats powerhouse, Empire Sounds to create an exhilarating night of dance and live music where everyone is welcome.

    Soaring up above the streets of Tottenham, this visceral performance will be part-gig, part-social, and part-dance party as it moves across hip-hop, contemporary folk and afrobeats vocabularies to create a new movement completely owned by its makers.
