In previous years this opportunity to see inside some of the beautiful, but inaccessible buildings in London has been a great idea. But this year the organisers have gone one better and there will be site-specific works at a number of the best known dance buildings including The Place and the ROH.

London Open House Weekend
21 & 22 September 2002.

from londondance.com

London's biggest annual architecture exhibition takes place on 21 & 22 September. In a celebration of contemporary and renowned architecture across the capital, over 500 buildings will open their doors, free of charge, in an event which attracts some 360,000 visitors and continues to grow each year.

As part of this year's special events, London Open House presents: Dancing Houses, Dancing Steps
In association with London Open House, Dancing Houses stages Dancing Steps a unique series of performances specially choreographed in response to the stimulating architectural surroundings of four major dance spaces across London.
Stairways and steps are the main focus for this year's event, the performance takes the viewer to new spaces undiscovered by the public.

This week end it's London Open House. I've just been making my plans - it looks like Greenwich on Saturday and the ROH on Sunday. I'd like to visit The Place, but my schedule won't allow.

So what have you lined up?

Here's some more information and links to the Open House website:

<small>The Place</small>

• The Place, an award winning re-development by Allies and Morrison has commissioned likewise award winner, choreographer Lea Anderson to create a dance piece performed by students of the London Contemporary Dance School. Also, catch the installation by theatre director Julia Bardsley, involving 150 white balloons, which transforms one of the specially designed dance studios.

Here are The Place details

• Well known to the Royal Opera House, choreographer Tom Sapsford interprets this year’s theme of staircases in a site-specific installation in collaboration with film duo Honey Brothers. The film features a duet integrated with real time visuals conveying the multiplicity of both art and architecture at the Royal Opera House.

More information about the Greenwich Dance Agency event.

GRADIENT investigates the relationship between our nervous system and our natural ability to communicate without words through abstracted and theatrical notions related to our senses.

Directed by Filip Van Huffel, GRADIENT is performed by Retina Dance Company dancers James Flynn, Maho Ihara, Nadia Sellier and Filip Van Huffel with additional dancers Leon Baugh, Claire Benson, Delphine Gaborit, Amalia Garcia, Katryn Jackson and Dan Watson. Jules Maxwell has created an exhilarating new music score for GRADIENT performed live by the company.
