Synopsis

Mayflower Summer Youth Dance Project
We are delighted to partner with UK leading hip-hop dance company ZooNation to present their critically-acclaimed production Groove on Down the Road as 2018’s Summer Youth Dance Project. The company behind Into the Hoods, Some Like It Hip Hop and The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party give their unique twist to the classic story of The Wizard of Oz.

Set in a fantastical urban world, ZooNation’s Groove On Down The Road tells the story of Dorothy and her adventures with Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion on their journey to Oz. The audience join Dorothy, complete with ruby sneakers, and friends in this hip-hop dance production as they follow the yellow brick road in a quest to find happiness and family.

This unique project will see ZooNation creatives working with local young people aged 10-18 to recreate and re-imagine this well-loved story.

Originally written and directed by Kate Prince and commissioned by Southbank Centre, the production will include music from the 1978 film The Wiz, re-mixed with current hits by DJ Walde.
