The Camden Town Group was a small, short-lived group of artists which flourished between about 1911 and 1914. Key members of the group were Walter Sickert, Harold Gilman, Charles Ginner, and Spencer Gore, and it was named after the area of London in which several of them lived and worked. Inspired by the work of artists like van Gogh, Gauguin and C?zanne, these painters adapted the Europeans' brilliant use of colour and energetic brushwork to very British subject matter, creating a vibrant visual style in the process. One of their principal subjects was London, and these artists were certainly interested in the fast-changing cityscape of glitzy modern buildings and spectacular new kinds of entertainment like the cinema; but they were also drawn to the quieter, more prosaic world of the suburbs, and occasionally their pictures focussed on the downright sleazy.

'Folk' explores the relationships between people and how they behave when they are in a group compared to how they behave when they are on their own. What makes people form a group or a particular connection with someone? What ostracises people from a group and how does this affect their behaviour? The dancers were encouraged to create characters based on the variety and expression of the characters and communities you see in old 17th and 18th century oil paintings in order to create a surreal-yet-familiar community for the characters in the piece to exist in. This pushes the fine line between fantasy and reality; a world which is not immediately identifiable or recognisable, yet which we can all relate to on some level.
