Seriously Spectacular Street Theatre
A thrilling showcase of high octane performing arts that use architectural landmarks as their backdrop
THE SUNDAY TIMES

The best of UK and international street arts will bring extraordinary sights and sounds to Greenwich and East London in this historic Olympic Year.

For the first time ever the Festival will be bringing the spirit of the outdoors inside an arts venue with the world premiere of CROW (jointly commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and Greenwich Council), a dance theatre realisation of Ted Hughes powerful poems by Handspring Puppet Company, whose puppetry in War Horse has been seen by audiences of millions across the world.*
*Please note the performances of CROW will take place at Greenwich Dance Agency and tickets will be available in early March.
All other shows are free and the majority of the Festival programme takes place in outdoor spaces in Greenwich and East London. More details on the Festival programme and locations will be available at www.festival.org from mid March.
