Presented by Chad Taylor

Fresh from Breakin’ Convention ’18, Manchester’s own, Chad Taylor uses the intricacy of Hip Hop to explore mental health, psychosis and how substance abuse infests and play tricks on the mind.

Having worked with artists from Cheryl Cole, Paloma Faith and Little Mix amongst others, Chad went on to choreograph for CBBC’s Zinzillers and Britains Got Talent’s George Sampson.

In Awakening, Chad reveals his personal experience of transformation, of new highs, reached through a dramatic low, being sectioned.

Commissioned by Dance Manchester and supported by Waterside Arts, Sustained Theatre Up North (STUN), DAD at One Dance UK and by National Lottery funding through Arts Council England and GMCA Culture and Social Fund.

This event takes place on Waterside Plaza.
