Japanese manga artist Akio Tanaka joins the Olivier award-winning team behind Pied Piper for an explosive narrative dance work integrating hip-hop, manga and martial arts.
Five troublemakers are sent to a rehabilitation camp for young offenders run by the Grand Master of martial art, Pih Poh Fu. Unknown to them, he is also a Guardian of Prana - a secret warrior group entrusted with the protection of a spell controlling peace. When a rebellious Guardian seeks to seize power, the five must lead the battle of god against evil.
Inspired by manga, this new production by Barbican Artistic Associate Boy Blue Entertainment is steeped in the visual identity and quirky characters central to the comic book genre.
