White Caps

By Wilkie Branson

White Caps follows the journey of two men as they embark on an epic adventure; a compassionate, exhilarating search for completeness.

Expressed through cinematic film and b-boy performance, White Caps brings one of the world's most exciting and raw cultures into the theatre. Witness this new fusion of moving image and break dancing performed by Champloo Dance Company.

As a short, 'Stronger' has screened at the following festivals:

White Caps launched with 2 sell-out runs of 5 show runs at the Bristol Old Vic in 2010. In 2011, the show toured internationally in Portugal, Holland, Ireland and the UK culminating with a run at Sadler's Wells in London. Following its selection for the 2012 British Dance Edition showcase White Caps continues to tour internationally in 2012/13 travelling to Canada, India and throughout Europe.

Film shorts from white caps have toured internationally since 2010 with over 40 official selections for festivals and broadcasts across 15 countries.
