For the NOW Gallery on the Greenwich Peninsula, Florence Peake is creating a new sculptural performance work. A play with the weather and environment of the glass-walled gallery, dancers will build structures in response to the light and atmosphere and presence of people in the space.
SHIFT CONSTRUCT will move between indoor and outdoor spaces over three hours; audiences are welcome to come and go at their leisure.
