A tale you think you know unravels and explodes.

Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious, complex and perhaps misunderstood villain. It imagines the story of Fagin’s youth, driven by greed and ambition in the face of overwhelming poverty. The streets are a place of little comfort and no easy redemption, and there is no fairy tale ending.

See Dickens’ Oliver Twist in a shadowy new light as Tony Adigun’s Avant Garde Dance flip your expectations of five familiar characters with their unmatched contemporary hip hop style.
