Today saw Dance projects from around the UK arrive at London’s St Pancras station to officially launch Big Dance. They were greeted by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and world renown choreographer and former dancer Arlene Phillips OBE and our Leopard Films crew were there to capture it all!
Big Dance 2012 is set to be the UK’s biggest ever celebration of dance with a programme of events taking place around the UK culminating in Big Street Dance Day on 14 July. World-renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor is taking on a hugely ambitious project by choreographing over 35 separate dance groups to perform together in one place. Over 1000 performers will be woven together by Wayne to create one epic scale 40 minute work in Trafalgar Square, in a unique and memorable event as part of the London 2012 Festival.
As part of Big Dance Week and in association with BAFTA, five specially commissioned partnerships between choreographers and film-makers will be broadcast as part of Random Acts, Channel 4’s short-form late night arts strand, between 9 – 13 July.
