About Us will be at the Tower of London from Wednesday 16 to Saturday 19 November.
During the daytime, from 11am onwards, a digital exhibition will showcase newly commissioned poems, and animation and poetry created by children from across the UK.
After dark at 5.30pm, our show site transforms to share About Us, which is a live outdoor multimedia display and performance. The show lasts 25 minutes and is repeated at half-hour intervals throughout the evening, finishing at 9:30pm. It includes video projections, poetry and music and explores our shared story from the Big Bang to our hyper-connected now.
A live choir will perform at selected shows, which will bring together singers from choirs in Renfrewshire, Derry-Londonderry, Caernarfon, Luton and Hull.
The site will have an accessible viewing platform, accessed by a ramp. We are offering audio descriptions provided by VocalEyes. Audio description headsets will be available for collection from next to the accessible viewing area. Please ensure you arrive fifteen minutes early to collect your headset in time. There is also a hearing loop and BSL interpretation accessible. If you need any assistance, please speak to one of our stewards or email [email protected]
About Us is proud to be working with Historic Royal Palaces, Tower Hamlets Council, the City of London council and TFL to bring the show to this stunning location.
