The Lock In 'Remixed'

Thursday 14th Sep 2017, Corn Exchange Auditorium

Full Price £16.50 / Concessions Price £14.50

Radio 2 award winners return with their high-energy music and dance extravaganza, 'A Folk Fairy Tale'.

Fresh from their sell out performances of The Lock In ‘Christmas Carol’, the Breaking Tradition Dance Company return with a comical new version of their critically acclaimed folk and hip hop dance show The Lock In!

With live music from The Demon Barbers (Winners of ‘Best Live Act’ at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards) they will be bringing some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance bang up to date with some of the youngest, in a high energy celebration of dance culture.

Combining elements from Grimms’ classic fairy tales with a funked up musical score and colourful new choreography, along with audience favourites such as 'Hip Hop Morris' and 'Pool Cue Longsword', The Lock In ‘Remixed promises to be one of the most exciting dance theatre events of 2017.

A group of hip hop dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub, but local rumour has it that this tumble-down inn is frequented by other worldly characters and as the regulars arrive, a clash of cultures soon turns into a dance floor stand-off.

Fusion loving landlady, Grandma, is nowhere to be seen. She’s left the pub in the hands of the mysterious and stubborn Jasmine, who’s determined to stamp out the fun and keep things strictly traditional.

There is hope though, in the form of a mystical woodcutter who may just have some tricks up his checkered sleeve. Can the woodcutter succeed? Will the regulars get the party started? Will we ever know what happened to Grandma?

Grab a drink with the regulars of Ye Olde Fighting Cocks and let's get the party started!
