Go Quest at The Lowry

Published: 7 September 2018

Imagine a show that mashes up martial arts, sword and Morris dancing, breakdance, staff fighting and clog dancing…

Someone did, and they bring Quest to The Lowry in Salford on September 23.

It’s a family show from Breaking Tradition (makers of folk and hip hop dance production The Lock In) and Radio 2 award-winning folk band The Demon Barbers.

It features live on-stage music, projection, dance and action and was first performed in Bradford earlier this year before touring the country.

When Kai’s sister disappears, it’s down to him to find her, but should he be looking in the real world? Or somewhere else…

Quest ventures inside a computer game world set to the beat of new songs and traditional melodies with an electronic edge.
