Non sporting events on Day 6 around London

Tuesday 4th September

 

A highlight of the Southbank Centre's Unlimited festival, disabled choreographers Marc Brew and Claire Cunningham, present Candoco Unlimited, a large scale dance piece in which Candoco Dance Company's 12 disabled and non-disabled dancers are joined by guest dancers from Beijing and Rio de Janeiro. Also part of the festival, Caroline Bowditch's Leaving Limbo Landing, a free photographic and sound installation exploring our choices to leave or to stay, continues on the second floor foyer of the Royal Festival Hall until 9th September. Mark Haddon, the author The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (which you can also see on stage at the National Theatre at the same time), presents a one man talk entitled 'Swimming and Flying' as part of the Inside Out programme. Violinist Christian Tetzlaff returns to The Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with the St. Louis Symphony in tow as they revisit Brahms' Tragic Overture. And don't forget to head over to Trafalgar Square for the third BT London Live, with live, big screen coverage of the Paralympics and a series of music concerts every day.
