Fangs of Fortune is a spellbinding modern presentation told through Eastern and Western dance, circus techniques, magic, visual effects and physical theatre. It’s a creation by by Leicester based award winning martial arts champion, theatre director and choreographer Chirag Lukha .
The production’s creative team also includes exceptionally talented artists who have worked on highly successful and epic British and Hollywood cinema such as X-Men and Skyfall and television’s Got to Dance.
A powerful shape-shifting snake spirit transforms into a beautiful woman and falls deeply in love with a medicine man. She relinquishes her divine powers to devote herself to him. When a demon hunter uncovers her true identity and decides that such a union goes against the laws of nature, he will stop at nothing to destroy her. Can love conquer the fangs of fortune?
Fangs of Fortune is an immersive experience that subtly reflects the social and political issues of today, such as religious extremism, ecofeminism, and the social class gap through both its narrative and aesthetic storytelling.
Fangs of Fortune has been supported by Arts Council England, Attenborough Arts Centre and Phizzical Productions.
