On 20 and 21 October, The Point, Eastleigh, plays host to Avant Garde Dance as they present Fagin’s Twist. A fusion of hip hop and contemporary dance, the production is a dark, enthralling story that follows the early years of the notorious Charles Dickens character.

Fagin’s Twist is the untold story of a notorious and complex villain. It imagines Fagin’s youth, driven by greed and ambition in the face of overwhelming poverty. The streets are a place of little comfort and fairy-tale endings are hard to find in this poignant coming-of-age tale.

A highlight of The Point’s autumn season of dance, Fagin’s Twist is an ambitious contemporary dance spectacular, commissioned by The Place and presented by Avant Garde Dance. Described as a dynamic rethink and featuring a spine-tingling score, this is a fantastic opportunity to see the highly-anticipated production in the intimate setting of The Point’s auditorium.

Tickets are £12 with £10 concessions. To book, visit The Point’s website, or call 023 8065 2333.
