Big Dance Trafalgar Square 2016, by Akram Khan
Big Dance Trafalgar Square has been the consistent jewel in the London programme since 2006.
Following 4 huge performance events in Trafalgar Square, led by Jeanefer Jean-Charles (2006), Aletta Collins (2008), Luca Silvestrini (2010), Wayne McGregor (2012), Rafael Bonachela (2014), this final 2016 edition was created by world-renowned choreographer Akram Khan.
Akram and his Rehearsal Directors, Jennifer Irons and Jose Agudo worked with a team of Dance Captains and hundreds of participants to create a work unique to the iconic space of Trafalgar Square.
The participants, ranging in age from 14-86 year, from all sorts of backgrounds took the stage on Saturday 2 July after months of rehearsal and preparation.
