DANCE DERBY

Dance |
23rd October 2014

This powerful and hugely energetic dance theatre production opened to critical acclaim during Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013 and now comes to The Brewery, for one night only.

The dance marathons of Depression-era America, with strict rules, extreme conditions and ferocious competition, were the reality shows of their day.  Attracting huge audiences they could last for weeks on end, with competitors stopping for only ten minutes every two hours to sleep or wash. 

Ten dancers, two actors and a six-piece jazz ensemble bring this drama to life to a soundtrack of songs from the 1930s, performed by soprano Nadine Livingston.

Company Chordelia Artistic Director Kally Lloyd-Jones directs and choreographs.

‘…a beautifully wrought landscape of public humiliations and private griefs.’ 
***** The Herald

‘…an intelligent, touching show.’ **** The Independent
