Series 2 - Rebel Yells
Featuring a special co-production with Social Growl Dance: Drunk On Fiction
Drunk On Fiction is a journey, a quest, a mission, an adventure and an escape.
This new work for six dance artists is an examination of the powerfully addictive world of fiction and fantasy. Recycled plots, clichés and storylines that we see over and over again keep us yearning to escape from the mudanity of our lives. Drunk On Fiction dramatizes the personal stories of the performers to create a fictional version of themselves. These newly formed 'characters' model those we often see in both popular science fiction and fantasy. However this is only the beginning, the starting point of the adventure.
This bold and theatrical new dance work takes audiences on an emotional and imaginative journey. It reveals and speaks to the struggle for survival and purpose that we as humans, continue to battle with each day. In a way, we have all been heroes or villains at one point in our own lives. We are constantly starring in our own sagas, sequels and trilogies. Drunk On Fiction runs wild. It chases and fights it's way through worlds of fiction, to find its way to fact.
