Award-winning dance company and Somerset House resident Shobana Jeyasingh Dance presents Counterpoint, a performance choreographed for our courtyard and fountains.

Taking cues from the stunning neo-classical courtyard and the dynamic fountains, Shobana Jeyasingh choreographs a dramatic, intense and water-inspired dance, performed by 22 powerful women. Set to a pulsating score by Cassiel, this performance will take you on a dramatic ten-minute journey of changing speeds, contrasting textures and shifting dynamics.
