Tales of the Turntable

Tales of the Turntable

Follow Eric and his grandfather through musical history at a toe-tapping, heart-warming dance and music show for all the family, by ZooNation Youth Company.

“Bringing together music, theatre and dance – this is a journey through time. Join Eric and his grandfather as they explore the origins off hip-hop, funk and soul through to disco, house and rap. Inspired by classic family time travel movies.”


Budding young DJ Eric and his grandfather George find out they have more in common than they once thought. Inspired by moments from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Back to the Future, George winds back the clock through his gramophone to show Eric the importance of what has come before.

Join the pair on an adventure through time – from the early origins of hip-hop, funk and soul through to disco, house and rap.

Written by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, this innovative piece of dance theatre features music by DJ Walde. A Southbank Centre commission created by ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company.
