Time Out says

London theatre's free outdoor summer celebration returns in style

London’s spectacular free outdoor Greenwich + Docklands International Festival managed a spirited stab at a 2020 edition, but its 2021 incarnation looks genuinely terrific. The highlight for many will be ‘Borealis’, a laser show over the streets of Greenwich (Aug 27-Sep 5) and then Woolwich (Sep 9-11), which aims to recreate the Northern Lights. But there’s plenty of cool other stuff besides: the Dutch theatre company De Roovers will be performing a version of Dennis Potter’s classic ‘Blue Remembered Hills’ on a usually forbidden landfill site that holds munitions waste. Jeanefer Jean-Charles’s dance piece ‘Black Victorians’ (Aug 31-Sep 2) is an intriguing celebration of Britain’s pre-Windrush Black population. And there are plenty of returning favourites, including outdoor dance fest ‘Dancing City’ (Sep 4 and 5), and the family fun of the ‘Greenwich Fair’ (Aug 29).
