TOP folk and hip-hop dance extravaganza Time Gentleman Please! featuring The Demon Barber roadshow is coming to Lincoln Theatre Royal on Friday 13th July.
Watch was some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance are brought bang up to date as they collide with some of the youngest in an exciting new dance show currently on tour throughout the UK.
Time Gentlemen Please! is a fast-paced and innovative show bringing together some of the UK’s top folk, clog, sword and Morris dancers with their counterparts from the worlds of B-boying, popping, krump and beatbox.
The show, the brainchild of award-winning folk band The Demon Barbers, sees a group of street dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub. As the regulars arrive, however, a clash of cultures turns into a dance floor stand-off.
The skill, speed and athleticism of the dancers on both sides soon wins the others over as the old and new are brought together in an exciting and dynamic dance-off. Sword dances are performed with snooker-cues, pub bouncers dance competitive Morris and B-boys flirt with clog girls. Meanwhile house band The Demon Barbers takes English Folk music on a new journey with friends Hip Hop, House, Funk and Ska and even says hello to Burlesque and Drum & Bass along the way.
The Times described the show as: “a consistently lively entertaining music and dance performance virtually guaranteed to raise weary spirits and send an audience home smiling”.
Tickets for the 7.15pm show are priced £16.50, £14 concessions and £10 for under 18s and can be by visiting www.lincolntheatreroyal.com or by calling 01522 519999.
