Light Chasers Show: December 9th, Nine Elms, London
On December 9th we’ll be performing live as part of the amazing Light Chasers evening on London’s Southbank, part of a festival of celebration of the reinvention of the incredible Nine Elms area around Battersea Power Station.
‘An evening performance by dancers, skaters and the amazing athletes from Parkour Generations, choreographed by Lorraine Roberts. Wrap up warm and don’t forget to bring a torch or mobile phone – you may need them to light your way…
Come and join us as we follow the light
Into the new public spaces that promise delight!
Follow the skater with the cool, red balloon, put on your dancing shoes move to the tune!
Go on, be adventurous, come out and play!
Bring torches and glow sticks to light up the way!’
Lorraine Roberts, the creative vision and choreographer behind Light Chasers, began dancing early and moved to London to train at the Laban Centre for Movement and Dance, now Trinity Laban. After gaining a reputation as a talented choreographer Roberts set up her own dance company Lorraine Roberts & Co. and, following on from that, London Skate Crew, inspired by her childhood passion for skating.
Parkour Generations is a multi-award winning organisation that teaches and performs the stunning movement discipline known as parkour or freerunning. Our work fuses the stunning athleticism and movement mastery of parkour with music, art, theatre, dance and more to convey beauty, subtlety and creative magic.
Part of the Winter Trails: Remapping Nine Elms festival taking place between 18 November and 21 December 2017.
