Fagin's Twist

Suitable for 8+

A tale you think you know unravels and explodes. Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious and complex villain. It imagines Fagin’s youth, driven by greed and ambition in the face of overwhelming poverty. The streets are a place of little comfort and fairy-tale endings are hard to find in this piece of poignant coming-of-age dance theatre.

See Dickens’ Oliver Twist in a new light. Tony Adigun’s Avant Garde Dance flips your expectations of five familiar characters, with their unmatched contemporary hip hop style.
