Charlotte Spencer: Is This a Waste Land?

Presented by Dance Umbrella in association with The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership

Set on a disused piece of land between a historic flour mill and London City Airport, this immersive performance invites us to re-imagine how we value our landscape, homes and communities.

As day dips into night you’re given headphones and offered instructions amidst a constantly shifting soundscape that is delicate and thoughtful one moment, infectious and playful the next. Many worlds are created, destroyed and re-purposed in a playground built by everyone.

Charlotte Spencer Projects work in unusual spaces in order to open up new forms of conversation. Their Walking Stories was a hit of DU 2015 - now re-enter their intelligent and transformative world.

Supported by the Mayor of London, the Royal Docks and the Silvertown Partnership.
Suitable for ages 11+

Ticket price £20 plus £1.75 booking fee per transaction. The price shown is the maximum price per ticket that you'll pay, depending on how many tickets you book in a transaction.
