An exciting double bill of dance at the Roof Garden – part of the Totally Thames Festival

Plastic Swan / Everything Deserves a 2nd Chance

Plastic Swan
12noon + 1pm

Plastic Swan is an interactive solo dance instillation, choreographed by Sam Quy. A fun-loving Beatrix Potter style swan is in search of food along the Thames. To her demise, she naturally mistakes plastic for foodstuff. This dramatized intervention addresses the challenges of plastic pollution in our contemporary waterways and offers a radical new take on the dying swan. Plastic Swan is a not-for-profit labour of love intervention to help reduce plastic pollution on our waterways. Plastic pollution affects us all, worldwide.

Everything Deserves a 2nd Chance
12.30pm + 1.30pm

What value does society place on objects to determine which get discarded as rubbish? Is it when there is no longer a perceived use and value? Does society throw away people who are deemed beyond help and unable to change? Or can people’s lives also be recycled, given new purpose and value?
Everything deserves a 2nd chance is a devised, creative movement performance and explores how a piece of rubbish journeys through the recycling process of being thrown away, recycled and changed.

The Roof Garden is pleased to be hosting these shows as part of the Totally Thames Festival, an annual celebration of the River Thames with a creative and diverse programme that inspires, connects and enthrals.
