Frock

Six striking dancers collide in an uplifting dance riot set to a brand new art rock soundtrack by Hannah Miller and Oli Austin of Moulettes. In this quirky new dance piece, presented as part of Our City Dances 2022, watch playful observations of yesteryear explode into a ‘punkish’ celebration of individuality and difference. 

The starting point for Frock  came from Artistic Director Lucy Bennett’s memories of the 80s in England as a young child. Whereas her grandparents’ generation obligingly took on roles and duties as assigned to men, women, age and positions in society, her parents’ generation were much more daring and questioning. Now, in the 21st century, individuals seem to have even more agency in choosing who they want to be. Lucy wanted to explore how the choice over self-identity developed over the course of our generations, and celebrate where we currently are through a series of invigorating partner works between a diverse cast of individuals.

Stopgap Dance Company is driven by a diverse creative team who uses dance as a movement for change. They are committed to removing barriers to dance, nurturing the talents of dancers born into any body and any mind, and are a global leader of disability access in dance.
