fagin's twist


On the final weekend in April 2016, DanceEast in Ipswich was host to the world premiere of Avant Garde Dance’s Fagin’s Twist.

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

Avant Garde Dance have a long history with DanceEast, after selling-out the venue with their previous show The Black Album. The relationship continues to go from strength to strength, and the company regularly develops new work at the Jerwood DanceHouse.
