AVANT GARDE DANCE: FAGIN’S TWIST
Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, BN1 9RA
Thursday 14 & Friday 15 December, 7pm
Saturday 16 December, 3.30pm (relaxed performance) & 7pm
Tony Adigun’s Avant Garde Dance unravel and explode Dicken’s Oliver Twist in a moody and sinister hip hop reworking of the classic tale. Framing a young Fagin’s relentless quest for survival in the face of overwhelming poverty against a backdrop of adrenalin-pumping and heart stopping choreography creates a unique tension electric with foreboding. This is no fairy tale Christmas show but it’s a family event you will not want to miss.
Avant Garde is a dynamic dance group whose mantra ‘innovate never replicate’ is a creative call to arms. As part of their mission to inspire and involve young people in dance and organised in association with South East Dance, there will be exciting workshop opportunities and the chance to participate in the show. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
“Fagin’s Twist, is a daring, dynamic and hugely enjoyable rethink of a much loved Victorian tale.”
