Pop Up Dance: Void Spaces Activation project with Westminster Council

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance is delighted to be taking part in the Void Spaces Activation Pop Up project run by Westminster Council.

From 19 – 30 July 2021 we’re taking over a vacant retail outlet and  changing it into a vibrant dance hub.

During our stay, you will see some of our fabulous company dancers transform the space through classes, choreography and creative moves. The unit is their very own blank canvas.

Having time and space to explore creative ideas has become more and more of a luxury, especially since the catastrophic impact COVID has had on the arts. we are delighted to offer this opportunity to our amazing dancers Jemima Brown, Chris Thomas, Estela Merlos and Nafisha Baba who have been working with us this year on our latest creation Clorinda Agonistes.

Pop Up Dance is co curated by Estela Merlos.

Each dancer has been given a few days to use the space as they please. See below the full schedule of who will be running the space each day. You can keep up-to-date with what is happening in the space on our social media channels.
