Chickenshed‘s explosive dance theatre company turns its attention to the proliferation of knife crime amongst young people.

Using words, movement and projection alongside a contemporary score of hip-hop and dance music, Crime of the Century packs a frightening punch. The story is based on interviews with victims, perpetrators, families, surgeons, police officers and ex-offenders.

“Emotive and shocking, Chickenshed theatre company’s Crime of the Century is a raw and brutal study of the social engineering that affects so many young people today.”Edinburgh Evening News
