Dancing in Peckham

2019 | Performances and exhibition | Collaboration with Webber Gallery & Photoworks | Peckham 24, London | May 17 till 19


Dance is a universal language of expression. We dance alone, in the privacy of our own homes; we dance together, in pairs and in groups, forming communities based on shared likes and experiences. Dancing in Peckham during Peckham 24 explored the intersection between dance, music and movement through contemporary photography, performance and video, celebrating how these freedoms of expression helped define different communities.
Peckham 24 is a short festival of contemporary photography that takes place during Photo London week across warehouses, galleries and art spaces in one of London’s most exciting and dynamic artistic quarters. In the spirit of this year’s theme “Collaboration x Community”, Photoworks, Der Greif and Webber Gallery shared a space to explore different perspectives on a common theme, Dancing in Peckham.
The three days of photography, performance and music included live performances on Friday evening and Saturday during the day.
