International dance group brings hip hop to Bruton

International dance group brings hip hop to Bruton

There will be unique opportunity in November to see the exciting dance group Tentacle Tribe in Bruton. The group, from Montreal in Canada, have worked with the internationally-renowned Cirque du Soleil.

They will be performing two pieces at the Bruton Club on Thursday 7 November at 7.30pm:

Origami Mami – a trio of exceptional dancers perform a routine that unfolds from simple to complex geometry, looking like the interlocking parts of a complex machine with bending, folding steps as intricate as origami.

Nobody Likes a Pixelated Squid – a piece consisting of stunning urban hip hop dance, inspired by the fluid movements of diverse land and sea creatures. Relentlessly athletic and hugely impressive, these dancers have the internal resources and the external strength to pull off a superbly entertaining show.

Meet the choreographers in a post show discussion to learn more about their work as professional street dance artists in Canada.

Tickets are £10 adults, £8 children/students, available from Church Bridge Stores, Bruton, or on 07473 864 413, or at www.takeart.org.

The performance is sponsored by Bruton Festival of Arts ands TakeArt. Bruton Club bar will be open.
