TanzProg a History Sound Machine in the City of London LFA

TanzProg a History Sound Machine in the City of London LFA

A History Sound System goes to exorcise the “Sin City” aka World’s oldest commune previously known as Londinium - with words and music. Making you feel like a movie & dance in the process. A part of London festival of Architecture

“In the 17th century the City was the merchant’s residence where the heads of the great firms lived splendidly and hospitably. To their dwelling place they were bound by the strongest ties of interest and affection” Lord Macauley, 1848

21st century’s dislike for offices in favor of co-workings and home procrastinations (let alone the Brexit effect) will mean that soon Londoners might once again inhabit their hometown, The City, which housed almost 132,734 people in 1851 against 7,375 today. With its wonderful realm of lanes, wards, and skyscrapers it would be certainly an interesting place to live. Or will it turn into a giant Airbnb – like Venice?

TanzProg invites to discover and meditate over historical and future habitat of one of its crucial areas - the Cornhill, where Londinium had its forum, and which once made London a global economy capital giving birth to the original Lloyds coffee house & The Royal Exchange.

TanzProg is a short walking tour with words and music, an after-work cultural aperitivo on the open air. TanzProg is focusing on the minor areas - normally courtyards, back wards, mews, lanes – but with a major historical role. This format was invented by historian and musician Sergey Nikitin, who had previously proposed a discipline Courtyardology* to summarize the global experience of the courtyard and its role in urbanization. Earlier this year, TanzProg had its successful premiere in Moscow’s once glamorous Kutuzovsky prospect with avanguarde artist DJ Holkin; the tour became a hit with 7 sold-out nights nevertheless especially cold winter. It was featured on TV “Kultura”, and in architectural publications - Architizer & Calvert Journal to name just a few. In June it rocked the Cossack town of Uryupinsk – with crowds of local intelligentsia joining the walk on its crumbling roads.
