The Lock In - The Demon Barbers

Tell a friend:

6th February 2013 - 7.30pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

The UK's No.1 Folk & Hip-Hop Dance Extravaganza!

 “.. a consistently lively entertaining music and dance performance virtually guaranteed to raise weary spirits and send an audience home smiling”  The Times

Some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance are brought bang up to date as they collide with some of the youngest in an exciting new dance show touring the UK throughout 2012.   The brainchild of award-winning folk band The Demon Barbers, the show sees a group of street dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub.  Local rumour has it that The Fighting Cocks is the place to be ‘after hours’ but as the regulars arrive a clash of cultures turns into a dance floor stand-off.

The skill, speed and athleticism of the dancers on both sides soon wins the others over as the old and new are brought together in an exciting and dynamic dance-off. Sword dances are performed with snooker-cues, pub bouncers dance the Morris and B-boys flirt with clog girls. Meanwhile house band The Demon Barbers takes English Folk music on a new journey with friends Hip Hop, House, Funk and Ska and even says hello to Burlesque and Drum & Bass along the way!

Sorry, but you will need the Adobe Flash Player to see this media.

The Lock In promises to do for English folk dance what Riverdance did for Irish dance and Diversity did for street dance, bringing some lesser known forms of dance into the mainstream. Fast-paced and innovative, the show brings together some of the UK’s top clog, sword and Morris dancers with their counterparts from the worlds of B-boying, popping & krump.

 ‘The single most joyous thing I’ve seen in the theatre’  Antony Dunn, Yorkshire Dance
