Friday 16 July | Performances at 12.30pm and 5.30pm | Aldgate Square, EC3N 1AF
The circus is coming to Aldgate Square this Friday for a contemporary acrobatic show performed by award-winning performance company Upswing Aerial!
They will be performing Catch Me, an intimate and surprising take on age, race and gender. An older woman and younger man dance together through a landscape of abandoned chairs, discovering joy, risk and unexpected connections in a poignant duet. A mix of poetic dance and acrobatics, Catch Me asks how we see each other and who we value.
Performances will take place this Friday 16th July at 12:30pm and 5:30pm, so make sure you head on down!
And if you’re around Aldgate Square this Saturday, why not browse the new Sculpture in the City outdoor exhibition, followed by the mesmerising movements of Whitechapel Gallery’s Nocturnal Creatures festival, drawing inspiration from labyrinths and the Greek myth of Ariadne, to propose movement as a form of meditation.
The BID is supporting the City of London Corporation in the activation of Aldgate Square with many amazing exhibitions and events!
This month, we have Music in the Square, a series of wonderful lunchtime concerts. They are occurring every Tuesday & Thursday between 12:00-2:00pm so head down and see wonderful artists in action!
