everything that rises must dance (Dance Umbrella), Somerset House, London back to all events

At once meditative and mechanical, everything that rises must dance is a compelling celebration of female movement, incorporating both the everyday and the universal.

Created with more than 200 women from across London this free performance unfolds in three venues around the capital. Rippling with choreography that reproduces the minute movements of daily life while weaving in fragments of folk dance from around the world, the spectacle sets expressive, physical action to an evolving sonic score.

Director and choreographer Sasha Milavic Davies is known for making engrossing large scale work within dance and theatre and here has devised everything that rises must dance with composer Lucy Railton. This intriguing project exploring relationships, identity and community receives its premiere as part of Dance Umbrella 2018.
