All Generations Dance As Gods


Share post:

How much would you pay to see thirty local residents in the cast of We Are As Gods, a brand new immersive show taking over the entire Battersea Arts Centre building in October?

Well, you can pay what you can when two community groups – the Elders (60yrs+ from the Katherine Low Settlement) and Juniors (8-25yrs) come together to perform We Are As Gods, alongside the James Cousins Company.

The event will be celebrating the joy of being together again and reflecting the faces and talents of the local community and what everyone’s been through. It is a way of igniting their imaginations, reminding them of the joys of working together, connecting with different generations, and the opportunity to express themselves physically for the first time in 18 months!

Both groups are learning the same style of choreography as the professional company, as well as creating their own physicality and ideas to perform in the final piece.

Immerse yourself and party with friends in an?electric club atmosphere with We Are As Gods, James Cousins Company‘s first large scale immersive experience, drawing together Cousins’ choreography with music and sound design by Torben Lars Sylvest and Pär Carlsson.

Featuring recorded text written by British-Egyptian poet Sabrina?Mahfouz; discover a maze of rooms, rooftops, and secret stairways throughout our building filled with the UK’s most?exciting dance talent. Design your?night with a medley of local food and drink as tender duets and powerful group performances?writhe to?the?heartbeat of London’s nightlife, culminating in a euphoric after-party hosted by acclaimed DJ and Rapper GAIKA in our Grand Hall.

We Are As Gods runs at Battersea Arts Centre, Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, London, SW11 5TN 6 – 10 October 2021. Times: 7.30pm. Sunday 5pm. All tickets are Pay What You Can via
