DYNAMIC dance and pounding percussion is set to bring the stage of the Ipswich Regent alive when it arrives in town later this month.

RAW! Rhythm at work is a spectacular show combining music and rhythm created from the most ordinary of objects.

Using everything from cement mixers to step ladders, tin cans to hard hats, and scrubbing brushes to garden tools the talented performers of RAW! create a stunning show. If an object makes a noise then they will happily play it.

The result is a high energy performance rife with pulsating and infectious rhythms set to get hearts pounding and the excitement building when it stops in Ipswich on September 23.

Directed and choreographed by brother and sister team Scott and Michelle Peters this is a fast paced, action packed show that sees percussion and dance as competing forces that work with and then against each other.

Both Scott and Michelle began their careers as professional dancers who performed all over the world. This latest venture sees them fulfilling a dream of creating a show that combines dance and percussion which was inspired by a childhood spent dancing and playing rhythms on furniture and household objects with their father.

Meanwhile, the RAW! company of performers is gathered from a diversity of fields, including brass bands, West African drumming groups, classical dance and musical theatre.

Together they create a show that has already taken Europe by storm and is now set to recreate that success as it tours the country on its first UK tour.

RAW! Rhythm at Work is at the Ipswich Regent at 7.30pm on September 23. Tickets cost £17.50, £16.50 and £15. Buy ten and get one free. Tickets can be bought at the Central Box Office, Princes Street, Ipswich, on 01473 433100 or at www.ipswich-ents.co.uk
