Rifco Arts and Watford Palace Theatre present a new dance comedy drama.

Winner of Best Live Event - Asian Media Awards 2013

Fusing the enthralling dance styles of Bollywood and Street, Break The Floorboards is a story about a teenage boy called Zain. All he wants to do is dance, but a disapproving family, peer pressure, his two left feet and an impending fascist march are all getting in his way. A chance meeting with Sophie, a young dancer, ignites hope but can he really escape the grim reality of his recession-hit hometown and turn his life into the glittering world of his Bollywood fantasies.

The cast included Daniel Uppal (Flashdance, Thriller, BBC’s DanceX, ITV’s Britannia High, Rihanna tour, Ciara tour); Carrie Baxter (The Nymph, Boat 13); Alim Jayda (Britain’s Got Bhangra, Annie The Musical); Sheena Patel (Britain’s Got Bhangra, Wah! Wah! Girls) and emerging talents Nathan Clarke and Stuart Vincent.

Break The Floorboards is directed by Pravesh Kumar, Artistic Director of Rifco Arts and the talent behind their numerous hit shows (Britain’s Got Bhangra, The Deranged Marriage, Where’s My Desi Soulmate?). Written by broadcaster, journalist, writer and performer Yasmeen Khan. The production is choreographed by Andy Kumar (Rifco Arts Creative Associate and Bollywood film Choreographer) and Associate Choreographer Maria Swainson (Flashdance the Musical, Daddy Cool, Emeli Sande, Labrinth, The Saturdays). Set design by Libby Watson (A Fine Bright Day Today, The Deranged Marriage) with lighting design by Mark Dymock.
