Under choreographer/director Robby Graham, Southpaw Dance Company creates dance theatre performances based on a strong movement vocabulary of breaking (Bboying), contemporary dance and physical theatre.  The company creates across different contexts and scales and has an established reputation for spectacular large scale outdoor productions.

Touring in Autumn 2023, Speakeasy is Southpaw’s latest mid-scale dance production, following on from the company’s hugely successful outdoor piece FaustSpeakeasy is a re-interpretation of the classic tale, where Faust enters a seemingly normal prohibition era bar, unaware that the premises are owned by the devil and populated by demons, including a charismatic barman, Mephistopheles.

Speakeasy features world-class BBoying fused with 1920s swing styles, cameo performances from local swing groups, a spectacular 1920s themed set, stunning video projections, and a cinematic foot-stomping soundtrack comprising big band classics and contemporary hits.
