Hip hop goes Baroque read reviews & interviews…

Artistic Director Tony is known for taking risks, both with his own work and with the Company. So it made sense when producers East London Dance and Spitalfields Music approached Tony to see if hip hop dance could go Baroque. TheĀ aesthetic exchange between ancient and modern appears an unlikely collaboration, however there is more than meets the eye between these two artists Monteverdi & Adgiun a few hundred years apart.

Both described as mavericks for their generations, both these artists like taking risks, experimenting and challenging their audiences. So it appears to be a natural alignment to twin these two together and see if any magic does happen.

The show presented at Village Underground, was the perfect setting where ancient and modern met with urban rave the results were profound. This unlikely paid, caused a stir in the music and dance world – so read some of the press here….
