Last Minute Listing: Shobana Jeyasingh @ Somerset House

TaiChi.jpg Fountains, in a beautiful central London location, as a backdrop to some contemporary dance, set to great music which can be enjoyed, for free... That's Shobana Jeyasingh at Somerset House, choreographing a brand new piece that will be performed in the fountain, tonight at 6pm, then 7pm and in several slots over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For free! It's a rare chance for grown-ups to be seen making the most of the fountains, taking over from the hordes of children who regularly hog it for shrieking and splashing. The new piece will be performed by a cast of 20 female dancers, five of them professional, the remaining 15 still emerging talents, with design by Ursula Bombshell and sound by sound artist Cassiel. We caught some of the dress rehearsal at lunchtime, and can assure you that it will be cool and wet and very striking.
