Join us for a danced tour of Dulwich Picture Gallery, retracing the footsteps of the millions of visitors who have crossed our threshold over 200 years.

With four dancers as your guides, writing by Anna Selby and original music by Max Perryment, this playful promenade performance will introduce you to the world of our collection in a new way. Beginning with our founders and their aspirations for the world's first purpose-built public art gallery, we will allow the paintings to tell their stories, journeying from composition and artistic invention to an exploration of our relationship with great works of art and the power they can hold. The performance will last approximately 45 minutes. Please note that this is a promenade performance. Created by choreographer Katie Green in collaboration with curator Helen Hillyard. Designed by Kate McStraw.

Throughout the evening you'll also have the chance to try your hand at dynamic drawing from life, sketching live dancer performance and movements. Capture the body in motion and emotion expressed as our dancer-model weaves their way around the Pavilion. Art Macabre will share ideas of how to capture the dancer in drawings and doodles. Drop in activity, all levels welcome. All materials provided.
