Men & Girls Dance

The Guardian’s Top 10 Theatre Shows of 2016
Runner-Up - Social and Community Impact Award AT The Guardian University Awards
The Evening Standard’s Best Dance Shows in 2017

Men & Girls Dance by Fevered Sleep brings together two very different groups of performers: adult, male professional contemporary dancers, and girls who dance for fun.

At times playful, at times thought-provoking, Men & Girls Dance celebrates the rights of adults and children to be together, to play together and to dance together. It’s a joyful celebration of tenderness, empathy, and love.

Men & Girls Dance will take place at Tate Britain this summer, presented by Tate London’s Early Years and Families Learning Programme. In this brand new version, the dancers will meet in a series of playful encounters reimagined for the unique setting of the Walk Through British Art Galleries.

Performance dates: 27 – 30 July and 3 – 6 August 2017

This work is performed between 2-2.45pm, 3.30-4.15pm and 5-5.45pm each day

FREE Entry, everyone is welcome
