MODERN WARRIOR is a classic tale of East meets West, modernity meets traditionalism and ultimately shows that more unites than divides us. It was premiered at Birmingham Weekender and has toured to outdoor events in city centres, greenfield festivals, parks and car parks. The show lasts 50 minutes and includes a 25 minute training section where participants learn some moves, put on a costume and then join the final 20 minute show along with the professional dancers. The show can cater for up to 100 adults and/or children participating and suits audiences of upto 400.
