London Festival of Architecture -
Fluid Boundaries

Tue 9 July, 1pm & 2pm
Aldgate Square, Aldgate High Street London EC3N 1AF
Pupils from Oaklands School, Green Candle Dance Company and company dancers perform Fluid Boundaries


As part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture, we worked with not-for-profit architecture practice ft’work and dancers from London schools and community groups to create Fluid Boundaries, two outdoor dance works responding to the architecture of two distinctive locations – Aldgate Square in the City and Guy’s Courtyard at King’s College London, London Bridge.

Fluid Boundaries is a dance response to the idea of ‘boundaries’ – the theme for this year’s London Festival of Architecture. It aims to bridge the gap between physical, social and cultural barriers and challenge perceptions around everyday locations and familiar spaces.

The project will be overseen by Shobana and architect Clare Richards, the founder of ft’work. Participants from Oaklands School and Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets and Green Candle Dance Company will work closely with company dancers and ft’work architects to create two inter-generational, site-responsive dance works.

ft’work is a not-for-profit architectural practice committed to creating thriving communities and ensuring that social principles are adopted as a fundamental component of good design and development.

The London Festival of Architecture is the biggest annual architecture festival in the world. Throughout June, more than 400 events will be delivered by a diverse mix of organisations and individuals with the intention of radically democratising the conversation around architecture and the city.

Fluid Boundaries is a collaboration with ft’work for the London Festival of Architecture.
