ZooNation Dance Company was founded in 2002 by Kate Prince. In 2006, the company premiered Into the Hoods, which went on to become the longest running dance show the West End has ever seen. In 2010 ZooNation became a Resident Company at Sadler's Wells, and Kate Prince became an Associate Artist. Into The Hoods
received universal praise at two Edinburgh Fringes (2006/07) and during its West End run last year. Its success has had a huge impact on the profile of street dance in the UK. Featuring music from Stevie Wonder, Dizzee Rascal, Massive Attack, The Chemical Brothers, Kanye West and Prince, Into the Hoods tells the story of two runaway kids and their adventures in the ominous Ruff Endz estate. With characters like singer Lil Red, two-timing rapper Prince, Rap-en-Zel and gold trainer-wearing Spinderella, Into the Hoods resonates with contemporary cultural references and bridges the gap between street and stage.Producer Southbank Centre.
