Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, London’s annual outdoor theatre and performing arts festival, is coming back to the Peninsula - and it's all free! We have partnered with the festival to bring together spectacular dance performances for you to enjoy, including The Lost Opera by Ashley Peevor and Nikki Watson, Dandyism by Patrick Ziza Dance and Finale by Delreves, a daring aerial ballet against the façade of the Ravensbourne University building. Set your clocks and be sure to catch these dazzling performances.

The Lost Opera - 1pm & 6pm

The Lost Opera will feature extraordinary costumes, each with inbuilt speakers so that each costume can play a section of a wider composition that informs the movement. You'll also be able to participate in the performance as a chorus by using your phone to join the wifi generated by the costumes.

Dandyism - 1:30pm & 6:30pm

Dandyism by Patrick Ziza Dance celebrates the famed “Sapeurs” of Brazzaville and Kinshasa. The performance speaks of empowerment, identity and resilience in a joyous and upliftingly flamboyant statement of African style and cool.

Finale - 2pm & 7pm

Featuring vertical choreography, Finale is an ingenious reworking of classical ballet presented against the Ravensbourne University building with audiences watching from The Tide.

To keep you hydrated and well-fed all day, there’ll be plenty of delicious street food, including Spanish, Vietnamese, Indian and Lebanese delights as well as a pop-up bar, so come ready to eat, drink and have a merry time!
