Dance Umbrella Mythili Prakash – Here and Now

Friday 18th October, 2019


Ashcroft Playhouse


Vibrantly filling and spilling out of Fairfield Halls’ redeveloped spaces, our weekend Takeover brings a mix of international dance, pop-up events, performance-parkour, homegrown talent, workshops and mayhem to the heart of Croydon.

Catch the vaults, spins and falls of The Urban Playground Team, whose authentic fusion of free running and streetwise dance fuels their physically exuberant, outdoor performances. Families will be enthralled by the fantasy spectacle of Hocus Pocus, a gem of a show from Switzerland.

In the evenings, new work comes from captivating LA-based Mythili Prakash, chosen by Akram Khan as his ‘choreographer of the future’ for DU’s Four by Four Commissions, while superstar hip-hop company Boy Blueunveils its latest big-scale production REDD, bringing the house down for the final Takeover performance.

There will be plenty more ways to get involved during the Takeover, including your chance to become a DIY choreographer … Stay tuned for even more fun-filled announcements!
