Shrewsbury Folk Festival

We will dance together; They shall not pass.

This year, we were one of the lucky few commissioned to create a performance piece for Shrewsbury Folk Festival's exciting 'All Together Now' project! Collaborating with artists from all over the world we combined Kathak, Clog, Flamenco and African dance into a one time only performance, celebrating the rich cultures and art forms that exist in the UK.

We recognise the power and impact that art can make on modern day life, and it was with this in mind that we set out to challenge negativity, division and hatred, and our performance could not have spoken louder! An incredible 10,000 online viewers joined our live audience of 2800 to watch as we proved that not only can cultures rub alongside each other, but work together to create new and beautiful ideas and art.

We thoroughly enjoyed taking part and in this incredible opportunity, and hope you enjoyed it just as much as us.

Wishing a HUGE thank you all of the musicians and dancers that we collaborated with, and of course a very special thank you to Shrewsbury Folk Festival for making this performance possible. We can't wait to see what you have in store for next year!
