Congregation will be the world’s first ever ballet designed, choreographed and composed for performance by the audience. There will be no rehearsal: participants will respond to the choreography of light and sound and become performers invited to explore the environment at their own will. The score for Congregation has been created by Portland-based composer Peter Broderick.It will premiere in China as part of the UK's Programme of Events at Shanghai World Expo. The programme is a chance to showcase UK culture and creativity on the international stage and to demonstrate the UK’s collaboration with China across an impressive and broad range of areas. Later in 2010, UK based digital arts agency SCAN has commissioned Congregation to premiere in Europe at Bournemouth Square as part of Inside Out Festival and then to be presented at Tate Britain London.
