Stopgap Dance Company
Brace yourself for an uplifting dance riot in which six striking dancers revel in the 21st Century freedoms of self-identity. Watch a clash of eras, a collision of partner work and an outburst of fashion in show which makes you question what is considered acceptable appearance. Featuring Stopgap’s impressive cast of dancers, this ‘Punkish’ explosion is a celebration of individuality.
