Dance Unleashed

East London Dance set to challenge perceptions of young people in Hackney to create ‘Dance Unleashed’ – an outdoor performance on a Hackney estate using material from audiences on social media about life in Hackney. That’s not all; the company will also bring a live choreographic challenge, music from Randolph Matthews and a Q&A about perceptions of young people and advice on how to succeed in performing arts, with some key names in the industry on the panel.
