Free <del>Tonight</del> This Afternoon?

rafbonachela.jpg Catch top notch free dance, music, film and photography courtesy of brilliant choreographer and Southbank Artist in Residence, Rafael Bonachela, filling the public spaces of the Royal Festival Hall with some of his favourite things from 4.30pm. It doesn't look like Raf himself will be there, unfortunately, being somewhat distracted by the other side of the world but he's lined up three upcoming young choreographers/dancers to perform for you, whilst the Clore Ballroom will be adorned with dance photography. If you can't get down the Southbank this afternoon, it's happening again tomorrow, with different performers, including his own muse, Amy Hollingsworth.

Brilliant. The selected artists were completely uncompromising - none of them did any "dancing" - it was all about new ways or moving and expressing things - cutting edge and mesmerising - for the most part. Something you could genuinely stumble upon, for free, and be amazed by. Whilst old ladies hooted with laughter at Adam Linder in his pants and bar staff clinked glasses and security evicted a drunk bloke threatening the stage... Nice work, Raf & the SBC.
