Pied Piper

About: Pied Piper

Pushing street dance to its limits, Pied Piper is a bold, contemporary, hip-hop performance inspired by Robert Browning’s poem The Pied Piper of Hamelin. It is an innovative, original and thrilling fusion of dance and narrative, taking an edgy look at morality.

In an unnamed modern urban setting, the rats in the original poem become youths in black hoodies and are branded ‘ASBOs’, and Clown Governors rule the city. Pied Piper is a satirical performance exploring the recurring tabloid headlines, ‘Who will rid our streets of this vermin?’
