Dance Performance Based on the London Underground

Anyone fancy a bit of Tube history and Dance?

Metro had a feature on what sounds like a really interesting idea and dance performance.

Dance Performance on the London Underground - Sardines

"A dance production based on a series of mysterious encounters on the London Underground will be showing at the Robin Howard Dance Theatre on Friday, January 27.

'Sardines' begins on an Underground platform and examines characters from 1920s posters as they come alive to invade the daydreams and fantasies of present day passengers

What a fab idea and a brill title too. "Period music is seamlessly blended with a brand new score, composed by Wayne Walker Allen, featuring real-life sounds of Tube trains, automatic doors, escalators and ticket barriers sampled, looped and layered to create a uniquely 'urban' soundtrack!"!!

I really fancy going along to this and wondered if anyone else would like to come along too? We've had the odd little fun group trips to cinema, talks, tours and museums over the years, and anyone is welcome to join.

The performance starts at 8pm on Friday 27th January at Robin Howard Dance Theatre 17 Duke's Road, London WC1H 9PY and tickets are priced from £5 - £15. So leave a message in the comments or email me if you fancy going along. I'm a cheapskate and am sure the £5 tickets will be fine but the ones for a fiver need to be booked at least 7 days in advance. If you want to make your own arrangements telephone the box office on 020 7387 0031 or book online here. That also includes two other contemporary dance performances Desert and Weave as well as Sardines so seems like a bargain!
