Beat the RUSH with LeftCoast

Are you ready to experience the power of RUSH?

Set against an icon of Blackpool’s skyline RUSH is an outdoor dance spectacular telling the everyday stories of people we all recognise in a huge release of energy and creativity.

A community cast of 100 residents will perform with a world-class professional dance company in RUSH. This production is a one-off experience of dance, light, projections and film, exploring both local and global issues to an urban soundtrack.
