Dancers will weave through the city, bringing large groups of people together through impromptu choreography.

Look out for a large group of people weaving through the streets!

Follow them and join them for as long or as little as you like to watch and create self-organising formations responding to the surroundings.

They’re a group of group of 10 professional dancers joined by local residents and passers-by.

The idea is to explore how group choreography can offer an experience of togetherness.

MESH re-imagines new forms of public collective presence and explores the importance of experiencing interdependence in response to our divisive global political climate.

MESH will take place on the following dates:
22 / 23 / 24 June
21 / 22 July
4 / 5 August

On each of these days there will be three performances setting off from different locations:
11.00-12.00 – Meet at Haymarket
12.45-13.45 – Meet at Grey’s Monument
16.30-17-30 – Meet at Baltic Square

(On Friday 22 June there will be no 16.30 performance due to the Get North! Opening Event)
