What better way to enjoy a sunny weekend in London than to indulge in dinner and dancing in some extraordinary settings? We had a delightful afternoon wandering around the Royal Opera House as part of Deloitte Ignite
last weekend, soaking up some of the great things choreographer Wayne McGregor had programmed. There was sonic artwork from Scanner
, the brain-mashing virtual reality game You Get Me
that was played in real time with real people in the basement in Covent Garden and Mile End Park simultaneously (read more at the Blast Theory website
) and a glorious specially choreographed piece by McGregor called Proprius
, mixing professionals with ballet school kids and kids from no dance background whatsoever.
Then it was time for dinner on Southwark Bridge with Feast on the Bridge but we had to stumble through the hay fight first. No sign of Jeeves who was no doubt hiding under one of the long tables, fearing for his fastidious life. Everyone looked like they were having enormous fun and as the sun began to set, we began to look forward to the next weekend which is due any minute… NOW…
Enjoy – and remember to take pictures!
