The Lock In ‘Remixed’ – Folk Fairy Tale

Fresh from their sell out performances of The Lock In ‘Christmas Carol’, the Breaking Tradition Dance Company return to Ye Olde Fighting Cocks for a comical new version of their critically acclaimed folk and hip hop dance show ‘The Lock In!’

With live music from The Demon Barbers (Winners of ‘Best Live Act’ @ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards) they will be bringing some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance bang up to date with some of the youngest, in a high energy celebration of dance culture.

A group of hip hop dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub, but local rumour has it that this tumble-down inn is frequented by other worldly characters and as the regulars arrive, a clash of cultures soon turns into a dance floor stand-off.

Combining elements from Grimms’ classic fairy tales with a funked up musical score and colourful new choreography, along with audience favourites such as ‘Hip Hop Morris‘ and ‘Pool Cue Longsword‘, The Lock In ‘Remixed’ promises to be one of the most exciting theatre events of 2017!

Fusion loving landlady, Grandma, is nowhere to be seen. She’s left the pub in the hands of the mysterious and stubborn Jasmine, who’s determined to stamp out the fun and keep things strictly traditional.

There is hope though, in the form of a mystical woodcutter who may just have some tricks up his checkered sleeve. Can the woodcutter succeed? Will the regulars get the party started? Will we ever find out what happened to Grandma?

Check out The Lock In ‘Remixed’ at a theatre near you to find out!
