Rediscovering old traditions through contemporary forms.
Folk Dance Remixed is a fresh, quirky, colourful and magical collision of traditional and Hip Hop dance and music: high-energy, with a unique remix of Maypole, Clogging, Ceilidh, Street, House and Breakdance with a hint of African & Bollywood… to a live soundtrack of fiddle & beat boxing. This is Folk and Street Dance like you’ve never seen it before!
Folk Dance Remixed takes its inspiration from generating a creative playground to grow new and innovative ideas of mixing folk dance and music of many cultures with contemporary and street dance styles. We are excited by the similarities and differences in hip hop and folk dance; essentially, they have both come from the street and from the people; they both have social aspects and room for self-expression. The resulting synergy has creative impact and power.
Led by Artistic Directors Kerry Fletcher and Natasha Khamjani, Folk Dance Remix rediscover old traditions through contemporary forms, and take it out on the streets through performances, Street Dance and participatory Ceilidh Jams.
