A tale you think you know unravels and explodes.

Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious and complex villain. It imagines Fagin’s youth, driven by greed and ambition in the face of overwhelming poverty. The streets are a place of little comfort and fairy-tale endings are hard to find in this poignant coming-of-age tale.

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

“Pure dance moments: energised, synchronised and at times capable of adrenaline-inducing excitement.”
****  The Herald 

“Precision and detailed finesse… Can we have some more, please?”
****  The Scotsman 

“There were times when I couldn’t take my eyes off the performers, as the music and movement grabbed by emotions and thoughts and the whole experience took my breath away.”
North West End

Tony Adigun’s choreography is simply breathtaking with the eight piece dance troupe performing the high speed, complex dance moves with style, panache and slick precision…

An incredibly inventive and entertaining dance piece that is well worth a watch, particularly if you’re a fan of Dickens’ classic tale. An inventive, dynamic and high intensity dance piece which pushes the boundaries of hip-hop and contemporary dance.”
Frankly My Dear

Fagin’s Twist is commissioned by Theatre Bristol, East London Dance, Pavilion Dance South West, Dance East and The Place, and co-produced by The Place. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Tony Adigun is a Work Place artist.
