Dancing in the Urban Wild is an opportunity to dance together with others in the wild(ish) spaces of south-east London. Expect oak trees, birds, dogs, spontaneous artworks, the occasional spectator, great company, and general joy and life-enhancement. There is a little simple, non-directive facilitation, but the emphasis is on freedom to emerge your own dance in your own way, in response to nature and the other dancers. We dance through two cycles – starting small, rising to a crescendo and slowing to a pause – to an eclectic mix of music (silent disco headsets are provided. All are welcome. Dance experience and aptitude are pretty irrelevant; more important is curiosity about what happens when you put your body in motion.
