The Lock In, Cast

This clash of cultures brings together the traditional and the contemporary at the Doncaster arts venue tomorrow.

Folk powerhouse The Demon Barbers have brought some of the UK’s oldest forms of dance bang up to date as they collide with some of the youngest in an exciting new dance show.

Fast-paced and innovative, the show brings together some of the UK’s top clog, sword and Morris dancers with their counterparts from the worlds of B-boying, popping and krump.

The show sees a group of street dancers arrive at an apparently deserted pub.

Local rumour has it that The Fighting Cocks is the place to be ‘after hours’ but as the regulars arrive a clash of cultures turns into a dance floor stand-off.

Sword dances are performed with snooker cues, pub bouncers dance the Morris and B-boys flirt with clog girls.

The Demon Barbers provide the soundtrack, mixing up folk music with hip hop, house, funk and ska and even a bit of burlesque and drum and bass.

The show was a big hit at the Glastonbury Festival and at the Edinburgh Fringe last summer.

The Lock In starts tomorrow at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from Doncaster Ticket Office on 01302 303 959 or
