Dancing About

Beschreibung

"In our first dance piece in almost 20 years of performing together, Gob Squad have invented a new form of dance floor, part nightclub, part ritual worship, part expressive dance therapy. Dance itself is both form and content of Dancing About. Over the ages people have congregated in various forms of popular dance rituals to express their intentions and emotions. Gob Squad seeks to harness the euphoria generated through dancing and use it to show where we are today, as individuals and as a group. In Dancing About, the dancers give it their all to turn a personal weakness, a secret passion or a shameful stigma into the most impressive dance possible. The paradox of the cult of the individual and our need for community becomes the central drama of the piece. The dancers form temporary teams, shifting the individual to a potential ‘we’. One dances for many, many dance for one. The performers temporarily represent such diverse groups as ‘atheists’, ‘optimists’ or ‘children of alcoholics’, forming constantly shifting Venn diagrams of belonging, standing up to be counted as a proud minority, sometimes a minority of one..."
