Immerse yourself in a London kind of Harlem with choreographer Ivan Blackstock, co-founder of BirdGang Dance Company, as Dance Umbrella presents its first show with the Young Vic. A Harlem Dream takes inspiration from the Harlem Renaissance, an African American cultural movement that emerged in response to the hardships of the Great Depression, and draws parallels with society today. A fusion of popping, locking and lindy hopping, burlesque performance, and an eclectic score composed by Mercury music prize nominee Soweto Kinch combine to create a speakeasy atmosphere with a contemporary twist. The show is designed to tease and please an adult audience - be ready for an intensely visual, honest and thought provoking show.
