Opening night spectacle including fireworks launching The Greenwich Festivals
Presented in association with Greenwich Dance

This opening night dance extravaganza will have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief as Catalan choreographer Toni Mira, creates gravity-defying magic in the grounds of the National Maritime Museum. For one night only, Greenwich’s iconic Queen’s House will be transformed into a giant playhouse for 10 local dancers, accompanied by original music from composer Jules Maxwell and exquisite imagery from film maker Roswitha Chesher. Previously only seen in Barcelona and Granada, Toni Mira’s innovative concept receives its UK premiere at GDIF, in a brand new production created specially for the Festival’s opening night.
