Bro. Hipster. Lumbersexual. Wreckhead. Nerd. Player. Social Justice Warrior. Rude Boy. Absent Father. Where are the positive role models for young men?

Shut Down is a highly charged performance, asking ''what is it like to live as a young man today?'. Fusing street and contemporary dance, rapping and real-life testimonies, directed by Vincent and devised by an extraordinary cast of men and boys, this is ‘political and poetic dance theatre’ (London Dance) from one of the UK’s most risk-taking, rigorous choreographers.

Meticulously detailed, working across generations, it’s more than dance. Charlotte is shouting in the spaces that matter.”The Guardian
