Join us for GDIF2016's opening night spectacular! This specially commissioned event marks the 400th anniversary of The Queen's House and its forthcoming reopening this year. A mythic contemplation of the rise and fall of civilisations, inspired by Britain’s first classical building and its architect Inigo Jones, the production brings together video projections by BAFTA Award-winning Tal Rosner, ground-breaking contemporary hip hop from Avant Garde Dance, music by Novello Award winning composer Dan Jones, performance and pyrotechnics from the German outdoor theatre company Pan.Optikum, with narration featuring Olivier award-winning Sharon D Clarke, directed by GDIF's Bradley Hemmings.
