In Pictures: Dancing City 2013

Over the past week, the often sterile, impersonal world of Canary Wharf has been enlivened with free outdoor dance. The annual Dancing City extravaganza, part of the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, culminated on Saturday with a day of performance. Londonist photographer José Farinha was on hand to capture some of the moves.

These are great pictures of a terrific event, but I fail to understand
what is sterile and impersonal about Canary Wharf? There is so much
evidence to the contrary.

Canary Wharf has over 180 performing arts and events every year of the highest quality, the vast majority of which are free. These include something for almost every taste - sport, music, dance, ice sculpting, food markets, comedy, cinema, open air theatre, art exhibitions and much more.

There are also over 65 works of art on permanent public display, over 20 acres of landscaped open spaces and parks, more than 240 shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. There is also much history to admire, including the former West India Docks and the Museum of London Docklands.
