CROWD_CTRL

About CROWD_CTRL

4 dancers from London's Dragonsquad busking crew (of Oxford Circus fame) turn their personal history of the Afrobeats movement into a futuristic odyssey in a high impact dance, sound and visual experience for outdoor settings.

Featuring a cast of afro-battles dance champions, fresh motion graphics on a LED wall, and illustrations by graphic prodigy Wumzum, CROWD_CTRL is a dance & digital exploration styled into a live graphic novel – created by choreographer AndroidX in collaboration with MHz scenography.

"Bring the fire!"


Produced by Split Second

CROWD_CTRL is supported and co-commissioned as part of Stomping Ground, a commissioning partnership with DanceXchange, The Place, Tramway and FESTIVAL.org. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and Creative Scotland.
