A tale you think you know unravels and explodes. Street dance meets Victorian workhouse in this innovative take on Dickens’ much-loved tale.
We all know Oliver Twist, but what if Oliver wasn’t the hero of his story? Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious perhaps misunderstood villain. With nifty footwork, ducking and weaving, dance company Avant Garde imagine Fagin’s youth- his escape from the workhouse and his search for riches on the streets.
