At the heart of English folk

Associate Company

As part of EFDSS’ mission to support the creative development of the folk arts and engage a greater diversity of people in the folk arts, we invited Folk Dance Remixed to be an associate company.

Folk Dance Remixed  is a ground-breaking company creating unique fusions between Folk and Hip Hop styles with live music and is led by Artistic Directors Kerry Fletcher and Natasha Khamjani.   FDR rediscovers old traditions through contemporary forms, and takes it out on the streets through performances, Street Dance the Maypole workshops and participatory Ceilidh Jams.  Their fresh, quirky, colourful and magical collision of traditional and Hip Hop dance and music: high-energy, with a unique remix of Maypole, Clogging, Ceilidh, Street, House and Breakdance with a hint of African & Bollywood… to a live soundtrack of fiddle & beat boxing - is Folk and Street Dance like you’ve never seen it before!

As our Associate Company we support FDR through rehearsal space, involvement in project activities, and as a listening ear.  Folk Dance Remixed supports EFDSS’ aims and objectives of supporting artistic development and widening public engagement.

Folk Dance Remixed have performed work all over the country including: The Feast of St George in Trafalgar Square (London), Commonwealth Games Festival (Glasgow), CITYdiversions (Chelmsford), Borough Market (London), Wilderness Festival (Charlbury), Sidmouth Folk Week (Devon) and Milton Keynes Fringe Festival to name but a few…

“Refreshing and innovative! Truly crowd pleasing! We watched this performance amongst all walks of life and a huge age range, all thoroughly gripped and entertained, a must see!” Alexia Mc'Avoy, Choreographer.
