Six striking dancers collide in an uplifting dance riot set to a brand new art rock soundtrack by Hannah Miller and Oli Austin of Moulettes. In this quirky new dance piece, watch playful observations of the yesteryears explode into a ‘punkish’ celebration of individuality and difference.

The starting point for Frock came from Artistic Director Lucy Bennett’s memories of the 80s in England as a young child. Where as her grandparents’ generation obligingly took on roles and duties as assigned to men, women, age and positions in society, her parents’ generation were much more daring and questioning.

And now in the 21st century, individuals seem to have even more of an agency in choosing who you want to be. Lucy wanted to explore how the choice over self-identity developed over the course of our generations and celebrate where we are in 21st Century through a series of invigorating partner works between a diverse cast of individuals.
