Global Streets sees three immersive events burst into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, providing entertainment for visitors of all ages during the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival.
Combining live construction, performance and playground elements, 'Tangle' invites families to create a large installation by weaving elastic together in a gigantic web. A dense landscape of colour will grow throughout the day as each strand is added, providing a place to play, bounce and explore (July 3-5).
Children aged 5-11 can explore the nine rooms of Emperor Akbar's palace and experience shadow puppetry, storytelling, Kathak dance and craft workshops as part of participatory performance, 'Navrattan'. They'll also be tasked with discovering the missing jewels from the Emperor's favourite pendant (July 3-4).
The third event, 'The Colour of Time' sees a reinvention of India's Holi Festival. Dancers from Artonik along with music makers will guide the audience through the park in a choreographed parade, drumming up suspense for the grande finale where sizzling shades of gulal power will be thrown into the air, covering spectators in a rainbow of colour, celebrating both unity and diversity (July-5).
