Camden Alive kicks off with an evening of art and performances

Follow the Flow, Camden Alive’s launch event will showcase some of the exciting work under development for the project, with an evening of dancing, flash mobs, rapping and ping pong – and everyone is invited.

Starting at Pancras Square Library at 6pm on April 16 with performances by members of Shift and Shuffle, youth dance companies from The Place (London’s pioneering dance organisation). The library will be brought to life by these exceptional young dancers with unexpected and surprising movements between the shelves leading to a choreographed sequence on the balconies and open spaces of floor 1.

Camden-based spoken word and rap artists Boss B and Brownsilla will showcase their sounds and lead the flow from the library, across Regent’s Canal to Granary Square. Outdoor dance performances will pop-up in the square, including Joe Garbett’s interactive performance, Doubles, a fast-paced and innovative show where dance meets ping pong.

“Camden Alive celebrates the creativity of Camden and encourages residents to join in by sharing their own unique and amazing personal stories.

“This launch has been designed to give everyone a taste of what’s to come, with audience members getting the chance to have a peek into what our performers and artists have been busily working away on to bring Camden Alive to life.”
