Into the Hoods

Into the Hoods -- "An Urban Fairy Tale" is a hip hop/musical created by London-based hip hop dance troupe ZooNation. The basic premise of the show is a hip hop take on the wonderful Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. The plot follows two children as they get lost in the hood and try and retrieve an iPod, a weave, a pair of trainers, and a hoodie, in exchange for a way home. On their travels they meet a variety of characters, each with his or her own story.

The show features a wide display of dance, but has almost nonstop hip hoop dancing. Into the Hoods takes place at the Novello Theatre in London and features music from the likes of the Gorillaz, Massive Attack, Basement Jaxxx, Run-DMC and many more famous hip hop artists.

Into the Hoods has a large cast of break and hip hop dancers including Britain's Got Talent 2008 winner George Sampson, Got to Dance winner Akai Osei and Mr Gee, the resident poet on Russell Brand's BBC Radio 2 show.
