Event Information

8pm

Sat 2 Apr

A joyous blend of music, laughter, dance and storytelling.

Swing Sister Swing takes the audience on a journey behind the glitz and glamour of the modern swing dance scene.

This show interrogates the politics of partner dance, the complexities of race and gender within the swing community, and the magic of what we make together. Featuring six powerful women and a six-piece band – the dancing and music may be vintage, but this is no nostalgic throwback.

Written by celebrated theatre-maker Natasha Brown, Swing Sister Swing is directed by Olivier award-winning Director Miranda Cromwell with choreography by Lana Williams and original music by Two Twenty Two.
