AVANT GARDE DANCE AND THE PLACE
DanceEast is thrilled to present the WORLD PREMIERE of Fagin’s Twist. After performing to a sell-out audience of The Black Album in Spring 2014, DanceEast’s relationship with the company has grown from strength to strength.
Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious, complex and perhaps misunderstood villain. It imagines the story of Fagin’s youth, corrupted by greed and worn down by poverty. The streets are a place of little comfort and no easy redemption, and there is no fairy tale ending.
See Dicken’s Oliver Twist in a shadowy new light. Tony Adigun’s Avant Garde Dance flip your expectations of five familiar characters with their unmatched contemporary hip hop style.
Fagin’s Twist is commissioned by Theatre Bristol, East London Dance, Pavilion Dance South West, Dance East and The Place, and co-produced by The Place. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Tony Adigun is a Work Place artist.
Please note, the post-show talk will be after the Friday 29 April performance.
