Anatomical present The Buildy-uppy Dance Show

From the team that created The Doodle Dance Show, a magical hour of building, music and dancing.

Let your imagination run riot as hundreds of boxes are stacked, squashed and rebuilt. Help create enticing caves, wonky castles and fabulous creatures, as together we
learn that the strongest thing we can build is friendship.

Award winning performers Anna Williams and Tom Roden create an enchanting, ever-changing playground constructed and inhabited by its audience.

The Buildy-uppy Dance Show is a 2016 Compass Commission presented by The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership. Co-produced by Lakeside Arts. Supported by Danceeast and Cambridge Junction. In association with The Spark Arts for Children. Supported by Arts Council England.
