Dance UmbrellaOne of the world's leading dance festivals, Dance Umbrella returns for its 41st year, bringing new and fascinating dance to venues across London. In 2019 Irish dancer Oona Doherty makes her London debut with two London premieres: Hard to be Soft, her searing evocation of the city streets of Belfast, at the Southbank Centre; and Hope Hunt at The Yard. Celebrated dancer and choreographer Gregory Maqoma presents rousing dance theatre work, Cion, at the Barbican. The weekend Takeover of Croydon's newly refurbished Fairfield Halls brings dance, pop-up events, performance-parkour, workshops and mayhem to the heart of Croydon. In the evenings LA-based Mythili Prakash, selected by Akram Khan as his 'choreographer for the future', is one of the artists taking over. At various venues, especially for children aged six and over, Lausanne-based choreographer Philippe Saire directs Hocus Pocus, a dreamlike spectacle set to music from Grieg's Peer Gynt. With dance events taking place across London, it's time to go beyond your usual tube stop and explore the city.
