Blood Rite

A new, explosive fusion of dance, hip-hop and video mapping at the site of London’s Roman amphitheatre!

20 October 2017 – 21 October 2017

Boy Blue Entertainment and Guildhall School of Music & Drama come together to transform the facades of Guildhall Yard - set on the site of London's 2,000 year old amphitheatre - with an explosive new show. Using the latest motion tracking technology, combined with live dance and cutting edge hip-hop, Blood Rite shows an unforgettable series of provocative scenes that both reveal the horror of London's Roman amphitheatre and celebrate the perseverance of the gladiatorial spirit.
 
Food and drink will also be available, so you can make an evening of visiting the remains of the original amphitheatre under Guildhall Art Gallery while you’re here!

Blood Rite will take place at Guildhall Yard, Gresham Street EC2V 5AE on 20 and 21 October. Shows are free and take place every 35 minutes 6.30pm – 10pm. Find out more about the City's Roman story.
