Tony Adigun founded Collabo in 2006 out of a desire to shake up the dance world by promoting new and unexpected partnerships between dance artists across a range of styles.
Over the past decade, Collabo has played a key role in expanding the repertoire and spearheading a movement towards greater collaboration within hip hop.
The event sees choreographers and performers push their skills to the limit, as new pairings of some of the UK’s brightest dance talent come together to create innovative dance hybrids.
Collabo is available to tour as a show that acts as a tool to bring dance communities together to collaborate with each other, develop and learn new skills. AGDC will work with all the company’s involved, curate the evening and tour with a minimum of two London companies.
