#GOGGLEDANCE

What is #GOGGLEDANCE?

Imagine Gogglebox meets TikTok, and you’ve got #GOGGLEDANCE.

#GOGGLEDANCE is a live performance that takes place right outside the windows of its audience.

The audience record themselves watching, joining in, answering quick fire questions and getting creative. It’s designed to be joyous, inclusive and playful.

After the live shows, the footage from the audience members homes and our live performance is brought together in a high-spirited mini-series distributed online for free.

Simples!

If you are a resident in Kensington and Chelsea and would like to take part, apply today. See the web-link for details. The filming will take place on Saturday 8 August in the daytime.

Later in the Festival, the completed films will be available to view and anyone at home will be offered the chance to make their own film.
