Fagin’s Twist

Avant Garde Dance Company, presented by The Place

‘High energy, precision crafted choreography creates a dark twist on a classic tale’ ★★★★ (Stage). ‘Daring, dynamic and hugely enjoyable rethink of a much loved Victorian tale’ ★★★★ (Times). A tale you think you know unravels and explodes. Fagin’s Twist is a high-energy, contemporary hip-hop reimagining of Dickens’s Oliver Twist. Taking the classic as its starting point, choreographer Tony Adigun presents an evocative story of Fagin’s youth, corrupted by greed and worn down by poverty. Commissioned by Theatre Bristol, East London Dance, Pavilion Dance South West, DanceEast and The Place. Part of British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2017.

★★★★★ “Intelligent choreography with an explosive energy” – The Wee Review
