SESSION | National Theatre Riverstage


  • National Theatre Upper Ground London, England, SE1 9PX United Kingdom (map)

Tonight we come together, to look each other in the eye and dance.
We have time on our side and we’re making a space to call our own.

In this explosive outdoor gathering Still House join forces with Tottenham’s Steppaz Performing Arts Academy and North London’s Afrobeats powerhouse, Empire Sounds to create an exhilarating night of dance and live music where everyone is welcome.

Kicking up a storm on the South Bank, this visceral performance is part-gig, part-social, and part-dance party moving across hip-hop, contemporary folk and afrobeats vocabularies.

Plus Empire Sounds set after the show on Friday (at 21:10) and before the show on Saturday (19:00).
