LIFT, Battersea Arts Centre and MAYK present
We just can’t get enough! LIFT 2018’s smash hit SESSION is back. After wowing audiences across the country SESSION comes indoors for the first time, in the glorious Grand Hall at Battersea Arts Centre.
Tonight we come together, look each other in the eye and dance. We have the time and we’re making a space to call our own. In this explosive gathering, Bristol-based performance company Still House joins forces with Tottenham’s Steppaz Performing Arts Academy and North London’s music production powerhouse Empire Sounds to create a high-energy night of dance and live music. Dance party, gig and social, the show is led by an ensemble of young dancers who move across hip hop, contemporary folk and Afrobeats, celebrating community, youth and belonging.
