The Demon Barbers – The Lock-In ‘Remixed’
With ‘maverick & compelling’ live music by BBC Radio 2 award-winning powerhouse – The Demon Barbers, some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance are brought bang up to date with some of the youngest, in this charismatic, family friendly, 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.
The skill, speed and athleticism of the dancers on both sides wins the others over as old and new are brought together in this quintessential folk & hip hop dance spectacular. With sword dancers wielding pool-cues, bboys dancing the morris and hip hoppers battling with clog girls, The Lock In is “guaranteed to raise weary spirits and send an audience home smiling” – The Times
Meanwhile house band, The Demon Barbers, takes English Folk music on a new journey with Hip Hop, House, Funk, Disco and even says hello to Drum & Bass and Ska along the way!
“The inspiration comes from Damien Barber, front man of the award-winning folk band The Demon Barbers, who supply the floor-shaking live music that alone justifies the price of the ticket” – The Independent
Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.
