The Guildhall’s music hall, usually used for gigs and bands, will be transformed into a hip-hop dance floor

A masterful evening demonstrating the wealth that hip-hop has to offer from three UK rising talents. A triple bill of energy, passion and grit that’s not to be missed.

Happy Father’s Day by Dani Harris-Walters is a solo work and a reflective coming-of-age piece with a comedic edge.

Fig Leaf by Joshua ‘Vendetta’ Nash explores toxic masculinity in British people, opening the debate around where true masculinity and strength lies.

Man Up by Kloe Dean explores the stark realities of male suicide and the parallel emotional journeys for those left behind.

For audiences of all ages
75 minutes (including 15 minute interval)

“Happy Father’s Day is a fully-fledged theatrical triumph…It was all performed with the engaging and uninhibited charm of a seasoned professional”
Graham Watts, Chairman of the Critics’ Circle: Dance Section

“Nash’s fiercely intelligent FIG LEAF harnessed the heightened aggression of krumping to grapple with toxic masculinity”
Donald Hutera, Breakin Convention 2019
