England On Fire

BalletBoyz collaborate with over forty artists in the company’s most ambitious, audacious, and political creation to date.


With stunning visuals and live music from folk to punk and everything in-between, England on Fire unites a kaleidoscopic group of the UK’s hottest talent.


Under the distinctive BalletBoyz banner, choreographer Holly Blakey, choreographer and performer Edd Arnold, dance, mime, theatre and drag company Thick & Tight, multi award-winner Russell Maliphant, choreographer and performer Vidya Patel, Stopgap Dance co-Artistic Director Lucy Bennett join forces with theatre director Ola Ince and choreographer Shelley Maxwell to create a live experience like no other.


With performances by singer-songwriter Kami Thompson and post-punk band Gag Salon, the extraordinary soundscape also features new creations from Charlotte Harding, Cassie Kinoshi, Mukul, Keaton Henson, Joe Zeitlin, and Gwilym Gold.


Inspired by the mind-blowing book England on Fire by Stephen Ellcock and Mat Osman, this is a search for meaning amid the challenges of life in the modern and ancient worlds. 

England on Fire was performed at Sadler's Wells 8-11 November 2023, and is now in development for a feature film. 

Ten musicians. One rock band. Twelve dancers. Four performances. Burning the dance floor.

England on Fire is a co-production with Sadler's Wells.
