After a sell-out run and five star reviews at the Edinburgh International Festival, FLASH MOB transfers to London’s West End at the Peacock Theatre.
This multi-genre dance spectacular features talented performers from some of television’s best reality dance shows. The production presents an electric mix of dance styles. Latin meets lockin’, contemporary goes Celtic and jazz joins jump jive in a full evening performance that will literally have the audience on their feet and dancing in the aisles.
A new addition for the West End performances, headlining the show will be Charlie Bruce, the winner of the BBC’s hugely successful prime-time dance contest So You Think You Can Dance? Hip hop crew The Elektrolytes; the current reigning champions of America’s Best Dance Crew, who are visiting the UK for the first time since their victory. Latin dancer R.Elle Niane from the hit film Street Dance 2 3D, and her partner Edwar Ramos; plus contemporary dance duo Alleviate and Irish dancers Brosena from Sky One’s Got To Dance.
Created by acclaimed Artistic Director Gary Lloyd, who has choreographed and directed Thriller Live in the West End and worked with international stars including Will Young and Girls Aloud as well working on The X-Factor and the Royal Variety Performance, FLASH MOB is a feel-good production that is the ideal family show.
The Peacock Theatre is Sadler’s Wells West End venue. Situated close to Covent Garden and Holborn stations, the newly refurbished Peacock Theatre can accommodate up to 1,000 delegates in tiered seating with an impressive presentation area. Front of House facilities include two roomy bars, making the Peacock Theatre perfect for evening performances, gigs, awards ceremonies or presentations.
