Frock

Six striking dancers collide in an uplifting dance riot

In this eccentric outdoor dance piece, experience playful observations of the yesteryears that explode into a punkish celebration of individuality and difference.

Set to an exclusive art rock soundtrack by Hannah Miller of Moulettes.

Nadenh balances in a shoulder stand in his wheelchair, his head pressed against the pavement and hands bracing himself as he lifts his lower body and lightweight black chair into the air.

[Image Description: Photo from a live outdoor performance of Frock. Nadenh balances in a shoulder stand in his wheelchair, his head pressed against the pavement and hands bracing himself as he lifts his lower body and chair into the air. He looks towards the front of the image and we see the underside of his chair. Nadenh is a brown-skinned Cambodian man, he wears a floral yellow dress, black fingerless workout gloves and black trainers. A crowd of people watches in the background.]
