Dance UmbrellaOne of the world's leading dance festivals, Dance Umbrella has been bringing new dance experience to London since 1978 and in 2014 under new Artistic Director Emma Gladstone the festival celebrates its 36th anniversary. Highlights of the 18-day festival include 'Le Patin Libre', a show by Canadian collective which reinvents ice skating at Alexandra Palace; 'Bosque Ardora' by world-renowned flamenco dancer Rocio Molina who performs at the Barbican; Ivan Blackstock presenting a Harlem-set hip hop show at the Young Vic; and Beijing-based choreographer Tao Ye who brings TAO Dance Theatre to Sadler's Wells. The festival of contemporary dance takes place across fourteen venues including The Albany, Artsdepot, The Unicorn, Stratford Circus and Watermans, beginning with Jerome Bel at The Shaw Theatre and culminating with La Veronal at Southbank Centre.

 

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
