A tale you think you know unravels and explodes before your eyes…
Street dance meets Victorian workhouse in this innovative take on Dickens’ much-loved tale.
We all know Oliver Twist, but what if Oliver wasn’t the hero of his story? Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious perhaps misunderstood villain. With nifty footwork, ducking and weaving, dance company Avant Garde imagine Fagin’s youth- his escape from the workhouse and his search for riches on the streets.
‘★★★★★ An exciting contemporary take on a classic British story worthy of any stage in the country… the story of Fagin’s rise and fall is brought to life spectacularly here’ The Wee Review
‘★★★★ Daring, dynamic and hugely enjoyable’ The Times
‘★★★★ From pick pocketing scenes to fights filled with dives and airborne rotations, Adigun’s choreography [is] brought to life by a cast that act and dance with every ounce of their being’ The Stage
‘★★★★ Deft and precise as a pickpocket’s craft… a confident piece of dance theatre’ Evening Standard
