A fast-paced urban takeover inspired by vintage martial arts movies with exciting and dramatic sequences as two opposing groups meet in an epic stand-off. Pick a side, join either the Mods (Modernists) or the Trads (Traditionalists) and train to be a MODERN WARRIOR. You can join in, be trained and become part of the action or simply watch as the legend unfolds. Channel your inner Bruce Lee!

MODERN WARRIOR is a classic tale of East meets West, modernity meets traditionalism and ultimately shows that more unites than divides us. It was premiered at Birmingham Weekender and has toured to outdoor events in city centres, greenfield festivals, parks and car parks. The show lasts 50 minutes and includes a 25 minute training section where participants learn some moves, put on a costume and then join the final 20 minute show along with the professional dancers. The show can cater for up to 100 adults and/or children participating and suits audiences of upto 400.

The show contains an English language recorded voiceover in one section – we can translate this to other languages on request.
