Mayor of London presents Surprises: STREB – 15 July 2012

Today, 15th July 2012 enjoy daredevil surprise performances at landmarks across London.

The landmark locations of performances are announced half an hour before each event, but all are within walking distance of each other.

Surprises STREB has been commissioned by the Mayor of London and London 2012 Festival.

At 7.30am this morning 16 action specialists launched the event with “Waterfall” as they performed a bungee dance and jumped off of Millennium Bridge:

Follow @SurprisesSTREB on Twitter and tag #surprisesstreb for the up to date details as they are announced and visit www.surprises-streb.co.uk for more details of each performance after it is announced.

[The second event, “Sky Walk” started at 10am and is taking place at City Hall right now, just the other side of Tower Bridge - if you head that way you should be able to reach the next location in time.]

Surprises STREB: Human Eye at the London Eye Finale

An incredible sight as 32 STREB dancers performed the night finale on the spokes of the Millennium Wheel, as it turned faster than ever (a full rotation taking just 20 minutes):

Making their way from the centre of the London Eye, the daring dancers leaped until they reached every other stroke of the Millennium Wheel:

It was great to hear on Twitter that so many people from Wapping managed to catch at least one of the surprise performances on Sunday. But if you didn’t make it you can see a few more of our photos from Surprises STREB here and all the official pictures on www.surprises-streb.co.uk

    Thanks for letting us know about this, although it’s a shame there wasn’t more notice. Luckily I was in town and saw the Speed Angels at the National Theatre which I have to say was brilliant. I hope there are more of these type of events so that Londoners like me who are having their lives disrupted during the Olympics and didn’t get tickets get some benefit out of it.
