It’s Oliver – with a con­tem­po­rary twist

Southport Visiter - - What’s On -

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.
