Follow the beat back through time, as Eric and his grandfather take a trip through musical history in Tales of the Turntable, a dance and music show for all the family, by ZooNation Youth Company.
Budding young DJ Eric and his grandfather George find out they have more in common than they once thought. Inspired by moments from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Back to the Future, George winds back the clock through his gramophone to show Eric the importance of what has come before.
Join the pair on an adventure through time – from the early origins of hip-hop, funk and soul through to disco, house and rap.
Written by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, this innovative piece of dance theatre features music mixed by DJ Walde. A Southbank Centre commission created by ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company.
Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX. from 15th – 26th August. Times: Various (Check website). Admission: £25, £18.75
