A community-led responsive season of programmes, initiatives and events that will transform where we live and work.
The global coronavirus pandemic has meant many of us have felt our worlds shrink. For some, this is not a new reality, for others it’s a stark change. For all of us, our lives feel more local than ever.
The new normal has prompted Culture Mile to revaluate its interaction with the surrounding area, forge new relationships and reframe how a cultural organisation can and should support those in its immediate vicinity.
Over the next six months, Culture Mile will work closely with and respond to the challenges of its local community.
IMAGINE is a key component of this work; aiming to proactively and fundamentally shift Culture Mile's contribution to and vision for the area in a lasting way.
Directed by Lexi Kiddo, ‘The Spell & The Promise’ plays like a contemporary fairytale. The performance by Gareth Davies (Principal Flute, London Symphony Orchestra) casts a spell as dancers Faye Stoeser and Salomé Pressac respond to composer Jasmin Kent Rodgman's new and original composition.
‘Rising’ explores our longing for human connection alongside our relationship with space during a locked-down world. Directed by Antonia Luxem, it features Marie Astrid Mence (Ballet Black) with Maxine Kwok (First Violin, London Symphony Orchestra) performing a new composition by composer Darren Bloom.
