Contemporary Dance

Conditions of Carriage - The Jumping Project

Part of Alchemy

Witness a unique dance experience on the roof of Royal Festival Hall, as an ensemble of 10 dancers negotiate the force of gravity within their bodies within the space of a square pit.

Their endeavour is straight-forward – to open themselves up to the surrounding public through the simple actions of jumping, walking, standing and sitting – to reflect upon the body and its physicality through the closeness of contact.

Choreographed by Preethi Athreya and featuring 10 contemporary performers from across India.
