Artist Vanessa da Silva describes her sculptures Muamba Grove 0 Hue #1 & #2 in a state of transformation and a state of in-between with movement and the body at the centre. The artworks explore the artist’s own history and invite the viewer to do the same.

Dance Mama will lead you through joyful & accessible movement classes, suitable for beginners and those more advanced (inclusive for those on their perinatal journey/pregnant & postnatal), inspired by Da Silva’s sculptures Muamba Grove 0 Hue #1 & #2 sited at Saint Botolph without Bishopsgate Churchyard.

These free sessions are ideal for a quick break from the office, conveniently programmed over a lunch time, led by experienced Dance Artist, Laura Harvey. A perfect opportunity for gentle movement and exploration of the artworks and yourself.
