CAROUSEL by SOUTHPAW 
With support from Garry Blakely – fiddle and guitar duo at 7.30pm approx.

Carousel is a dance performance centered on a 1900’s style functioning carousel. The story revolves around the enigmatic characters that inhabit a travelling Fairground, and in particular what
occurs when it shuts down for the night. Music, dance and drama play out after hours on a spectacular moving carousel structure which enables dancers to flip, roll, dive, and spin to an eclectic Balkan and Gypsy influenced score that will enthrall audiences.

There is limited seating available on a first-come-first-served basis. The show will start after some live music from Garry Blakely duo.
Fresh from the Greenwich and Docklands Festival, this witty and immersive pop-up dance from a renowned UK company explores the strange and often hilarious world of online dating.
