It’s Oliver – with a contemporary twist
A NEW dance show based on the Charles Dickens classic, Oliver Twist, is heading to the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool this month.
Tony Adigun’s Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious and complex villain.
It’s a tale you think you know, until it unravels and explodes.
Performed through a contemporary hip hop style, the show is presented by Avant Garde Dance and The Place.
The show is suitable for audiences aged eight upwards and will be performed at the Epstein on Monday, November 12 as part of Leap Dance Festival 2018.
The show imagines Fagin’s youth, driven by greed and ambition in the face of overwhelming poverty.
Audiences will see Oliver Twist in a new light.
Tony Adigun is an internationally recognised artist who has recently choreographed for Cirque du Soleil, Paloma Faith, and the Sky One TV programme, Got To Dance.
Avant Garde Dance is also celebrating success this year, entering Arts Council England’s National Portfolio for dance.
