A TALE YOU THINK YOU KNOW UNRAVELS AND EXPLODES BEFORE YOUR EYES…

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

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.

Internationally renowned artist Tony Adigun works across hip hop, commercial and contemporary dance including with Cirque du Soleil, The Place and Sky One’s Got to Dance.

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. Supported by ResCen Research Centre, Middlesex University.
