Hip Hop, Clogging, Breakdance, Comedy Spectacular This Christmas at The Civic
Exciting new dance show coming to Barnsley this Winter.
This December ‘Folk Powerhouse’ The Demon Barbers return to Barnsley with a Hip Hop, clogging, breakdance, comedy spectacular especially for Christmas. This is The Lock in Christmas Carol, an exciting new dance show at The Civic which fuses Hip Hop and Folk bringing you the most high energy, spirited show of the season.
“Some shows demonstrate great skill and technique, some offer strong musicianship, and some create the kind of atmosphere and energy that leaves you high on life. The Lock In does all three” The List (Edinburgh Fringe)
Half gig, half dance show and half panto! Join the BBC Award Winning team of musicians & dancers for 150% of the very best festive live music, song and dance! Some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance are brought bang up to date as they collide with some of the youngest.
It’s Christmas Eve and the regulars of The Olde Fighting Cocks are excited about the night ahead, it’s going to be the Folk & Hip Hop dance party of the year! To their dismay the landlady, Jasmineezer Scrooge, has more profitable ambitions and is preparing to launch her new business, the ‘Oompah Techno Bar’! Cheap alco-pops, luminous lighting and mind-numbing bass beats are all in danger of alienating the local community and ruining Christmas! Fortunately, some insightful souls are at hand to lead her back to her senses.
Featuring “folk powerhouse” The Demon Barbers; artists from Breaking Tradition Dance Company; a new seasonal repertoire and a “slightly unhinged” approach to their family friendly stage shows, they are “guaranteed to raise weary spirits and send an audience home smiling”! The Telegraph
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.
‘A full-on show of such blazing energy and joyous ingenuity you scarcely ponder on the apparent madness of trying to marry folk dance and hip hop’ The Independent
The Lock in Christmas Carol is on Friday 1 December 2017 at 7:30pm at The Civic, Barnsley
Tickets £17 | £15 conc
