Fagin’s Twist is a new spin on the old Oliver Twist story combining the story re-told from a different perspective through the medium of street and contemporary dance. This family-friendly classic is being performed at Wilberforce Sixth Form College this Thursday & Friday evening by Avant Garde Dance productions together with Wilberforce Dance students, as part of this year’s ‘Back to Ours’ Festival.
The show illuminates character and story through dynamic, textured duets and group choreography. The style is influenced by hip hop but it has a distinctive contemporary edge.
Wilberforce students taking part are Level 3 BTEC Dance students who’ve been very busy recently rehearsing, attending dance and physical theatre workshops plus participating in promotional ‘flash mob’ style performances around the city, to get ready for their roles.
Claire Scott, Cultural Co-ordinator at the East Hull College located on Saltshouse Road, Hull comments ‘We are delighted to be hosting this memorable ‘Back to Ours’ Festival performance and welcome families and dance-lovers from all over the region to come along. This is an outstanding & exclusive opportunity for our students, to be able to take advantage of and one which will enrich their CV’s & university applications.’
