Shobana Jeyasingh Dance is to collaborate with architecture practice ft’work to create Fluid Boundaries for the London Festival of Architecture, with free site-responsive performances at Aldgate Square on 12 June and Guy’s Courtyard, King’s College London on 14 June.

The project will be overseen by choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh and architect Clare Richards, founder of ft’work, with participants from Oaklands School and Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets and Green Candle Dance Company.

In 2019, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance celebrates its 30th anniversary. For more than 20 years, its learning programme has been delivering dance education using Jeyasingh’s choreographic process, technique and movement vocabulary. ft'work is a not-for-profit architectural practice committed to ensuring that social principles are adopted as a fundamental component of good design and development.

The London Festival of Architecture is the biggest annual architecture festival in the world which, this year, will feature more than 400 events during June.
