The Picnic

Year of Production


The Picnic is a playful look at the very British pursuit of eating food whilst sitting on a prickly blanket. Four dancers brave the rigours of picnicking in a UK summer weather, to the accompaniment of live music from accordionist Martina Schwarz and saxophonist Mak Murtic.

Commissioned by Greenwich Dance for Big Dance 2012, The Picnic was part of an afternoon of performances celebrating dance, music and circus around the south east of London.
