About the event
Taking place in the grounds of one of London’s most iconic buildings, East Wall will see a cast of over 150 dancers and musicians fill the Tower of London’s West Moat in an extraordinary outdoor performance inspired by the stories of the communities that have grown up around the Tower.
Directed by the internationally-celebrated Hofesh Shechter working in collaboration with young London-based choreographers, Becky Namgauds, Duwane Taylor, James Finnemore and Joseph Toonga, this epic event will weave together a tapestry of music and dance that embraces east London’s diversity and puts its rich cultural heritage centre stage. From grime to gospel, krump to contemporary – this mashup of old and new will come together in a large-scale spectacle like no other.
Commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces, produced by East London Dance and Hofesh Shechter Company, and presented by Historic Royal Palaces and LIFT.
