Based on the famous ringside battle between African American boxer Joe Louis and German boxer Max Schmeling in 1938, The Brown Bomber brings to life the relationship between two athletes, once adversaries in sport who became friends despite the ideological opposition surrounding them.

Choreographed by Sheron Wray, the Dance Suite is performed by young dancers from the Hackney Music Development Trust and the Julian Joseph Quintet.
