Artists 4 Artists hip-hop showcase

🗓 Tuesday 17 March, 7.30pm
📍 Gloucester Guildhall, GL1 1NS
🎟 SOLD OUT
Tickets: £12/£7 – discounted floor seats: £5!

❗️CANCELLED❗️



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)


“captivating in performance – craft, intelligence and no shortage of integrity”
Ian Abott, Writing About Dance

“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



Presented by Strike A Light and Artists 4 Artists
Choreographers: Dani Harris-Walters, Kloe Dean, Joshua ‘Vendetta’ Nash

Outdoor VR Dance in Matson

A GL4 event, in partnership with Strike A Light

❗️POSTPONED – NEW DATE TBC❗️

From The Light Of The Fire, Our Dancing Shadows
🗓 26-27 June, various times throughout the day
📍 The Green, Matson, GL4 6LL
🎟 Free!




What to expect

VR headsets, gold coats and a massive gantry are landing in Matson. Dance through outer space in the middle of the green on the estate! 👨‍🚀

Our Dancing Shadows explores two sides of the same experience, one in VR and the other watching on. It uses the latest VR technology to enable people to collaborate in the same virtual world at once, untethered and outside.

You can choose to watch the dancers and/or be a dancer yourself. If you choose to dance, you’ll take to the stage wearing a VR headset. You do not need to have experienced VR before in order to be a dancer, or have any experience of dance. It is not a competitive environment. If you choose to be a dancer in the VR experience you will find yourself guided through a gentle, poetic VR world.
