SESSION

Wed 7 – Sun 11 Aug

‘Tonight we come together, to 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 outdoor gathering, Bristol based performance company Still House joins forces with the Tottenham-based 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.

Produced by MAYK. SESSION is a LIFT Tottenham Original co-commissioned with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, Pavillion Dance South West and Théâtre National de Bretagne. Tour produced by MAYK in association with LIFT.
