Jamestown! Where recycled rhythm and dance collide.

Powerful, virtuosic, rich in rhythm - Jamestown brings you a new Africa. A world of music made from everyday objects magically composed into rousing symphony. Acrobats balance, dancers spin in a compelling and high energy hour of entertainment.

Jamestown connects audiences to a world all about rhythm and dance using a purpose built set and instruments made of found and recycled materials. Jamestown brings together a group of accomplished acrobats, dancers and musicians known as the Jamestown Collective, who together use instruments, their bodies, the set and the audience to generate an explosion of percussion, rhythm and dance.

Jamestown is an original work and concept developed by Lucky Lartey, dancer and choreographer, in collaboration with the Jamestown Collective. The inspiration for Jamestown originates from the sights and sounds of Accra, Ghana, West Africa, where daily life is filled with vibrant music, rhythm and dance.

Never seen before in Australia, Jamestown offers a unique and original perspective on what can happen when percussion music collides with body percussion, African dance, tap dance and acrobatics set against a backdrop of recycled instruments and materials.
