Dance Umbrella, London’s leading international dance festival, is taking place across the capital between 26 September and 21 October 2018. This year we are celebrating our 40th anniversary with artists from 12 countries giving 29 performances in 13 venues. You’ll find 200 women celebrating the choreographic poetry of daily life, a freestyle dance battle, a Greek epic, convention-defying figure skating and a show boasting an avalanche cardboard tubes – and that’s just for starters. Join us as we celebrate being Fabulous at Forty. Every October we invite artists from around the globe to present work in traditional and non-traditional spaces across the capital. And throughout the year we run digital talks, make films, support creative learning projects and help pioneering artists make work. Dance Umbrella is funded by Arts Council England.
