Ten musicians. One rock band. Thirteen dancers. Four performances. Burning the dance floor.


BalletBoyz collaborate with over forty artists in the company’s most ambitious, audacious, and political creation to date.

With stunning visuals and live music from folk to punk and everything in-between, England on Fire unites a kaleidoscopic group of the UK’s hottest talent.

Under the distinctive BalletBoyz banner, choreographer Holly Blakey, choreographer and performer Edd Arnold, dance, mime, theatre and drag company Thick & Tight, multi award-winner Russell Maliphant, choreographer and performer Vidya Patel, Stopgap Dance co-Artistic Director Lucy Bennett join forces with theatre director Ola Ince and choreographer Shelley Maxwell to create a live experience like no other.

With performances by singer-songwriter Kami Thompson and post-punk band Gag Salon, the extraordinary soundscape also features new creations from Charlotte Harding, Cassie Kinoshi, Mukul, Keaton Henson, Joe Zeitlin, and Gwilym Gold.

Inspired by the mind-blowing book England on Fire by Stephen Ellcock and Mat Osman, this is a search for meaning amid the challenges of life in the modern and ancient worlds. Don’t miss this fleeting chance to experience a world created by these unique artists in a bold and explosive series of just four performances.
