Local band Sway Dog aim to redefine dance theatre and the art of fashion shows in their upcoming multimedia performance Re-Create Yourself.

The performance is part of the YMCArts in Education Project, a series of creative arts in education programmes for local youth organised by the YMCA.

The project aims to encourage young people to use arts including fashion, photography, writing and music to express their thoughts and feelings.

In this performance, Sway Dog will belt out original songs while combining elements of a fashion show with dance.

The performance will take place on Saturday at 5pm in the Fringe Gallery. Admission is free. For more information, call 2521 7251.
