‘Vincent identifies, with forensic precision, the different ways in which men react to changing times’ **** The Observer

Movement, spoken word, rap and striking visual imagery collide in the premiere of Charlotte Vincent’s powerful and darkly funny new film installation. Played across six screens, with an outstanding cast of seven performers including three talented teenagers, SHUT DOWN investigates the pressures, contradictions and confusions of being a man.

Charlotte Vincent, choreographer and director of Brighton-based company Vincent Dance Theatre, tells us about her newest piece SHUT DOWN in our Festival Hot Seat interview.

‘Powerful, moving, funny and tragic. Absolutely blew my new-to-dance friend and I away’ Audience Member
