What do you get when you combine a shipping container and heavy metal music?

A dance performance with some gravity defying acts.

'Origami' is part of the London-wide contemporary dance festival - Dance Umbrella - that will be performing two shows in Croydon on October 14.

“Having Dance Umbrella come to Croydon is a real treat," Councillor Timothy Godfrey said.

"Their work is internationally recognised and this is just another example of what will be in store for us in 2019 if we are made London’s first Borough of Culture.

I’m really pleased the dance festival will be using the beautiful Braithwaite Hall and I hope this will be start of more regular shows taking advantage of this amazing space.”

There will be two performances, with the first show at 1.30pm and the second at 6.30pm.

Between these times Dance Festival Croydon will be held in the Braithwaite Hall within the Clocktower complex.
