Blaze – World Premiere

Ariyon Bakare and Janet Suzman in Dream of The Dog Blaze – World Premiere

Street dance, one of the most popular dance styles today, explodes onto the West End stage this spring with the brand new show. Making its world premiere in London, Blaze features some of the world’s best DJs, B-Boys and street dancers, mixing nightclub vibes with West End production values in a high-energy theatrical show of non-stop dance.

Finding inspiration from the US hip hop scene of the 80s, street dance fuses many different niche styles including breakdance, popping, locking, krumping, and is heavily improvised. The brand new stage show Blaze sees these dance influences blended with an exciting soundtrack and eye-catching set design created by Es Devlin (set designer for Kanye West, Mika, Take That, Pet Shop Boys and the upcoming Lady Gaga tour).

Street dance has seen a significant rise in popularity on stage, at music festivals and on reality TV shows such as Britain’s Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing, and has captured the imagination of a whole new fan base. Blaze perfectly taps into this cultural phenomenon and guarantees to delight street dance enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
