In Your Rooms
None of the usual theatrical warnings about switching off your mobiles tonight. Camera phones were sparking all over the place at the Roundhouse in north London, where Hofesh Shechter was storming though a double bill that was more rock gig than dancehouse offering.
“Only £5? Seriously?” Hip hop artist Jonzi D was compering Sadler’s Wells Sampled, but was still surprised when the audience told him how cheap their tickets had been. Back for a second year, Sampled is encouraging audiences to give dance a whirl: low prices, plenty of different styles on offer, a range of classes and events around the performances. The theatre was full and happy.
