Having a bash at changing the world, one pop hit a time. Through dance. Yep, dance.

In a mixed up whirlwind of glamourous divas, guitar solos and gangster rappers, A Lyrical Dance Concert revisits the lyrics of well-loved pop music and transforms their powers through an unlikely choreographic lens.

Inspired by the common-knowledge nature of pop songs, A Lyrical Dance Concert moves through sincere recital, detailed dancing, absurd wrestling match, raucous sing-along to sentimental slow-dance.  Somehow, suddenly, the unexpected pairings of Mariah Carey and Dire Straits, punky shouting and angelic warbling, beautiful frocks and DIY logo-sweatshirts come together to form an experience that is spirited, challenging and, most of all, a real fun time.

This project was produced and commissioned by Dance4 and toured venues across the East Midlands: Jam Cafe Nottingham (as part of Nottdance 2013), Create Theatre Mansfield, Newark Palace Theatre,  The Picturedrome Northampton, Lincoln Drill Hall,  and Y Theatre Leicester.
