Spontaneous Combustion is a yearly dance and performance festival held in various indoor and outdoor spaces around a selected area of London. For the first time this year, 'Spont' is developed in association with the NINES and will take place in and around Copeland Park and the Bussey Building.
Originally a Victorian industrial complex, the Bussey Building and surrounding site have recently been saved from destruction by the local campaign Peckham Vision. Artists were invited to devise new work or to relocate previous work in various spaces around the estate, including the roof top, the car park and different commercial premises including a record shop, yoga studio, gym, recording studio and a cycle shop.
