Clear Midnight

Midnight in a bar, with performers in the role of patrons, taking over the stage and leading to a place where the ecstatic body rules supreme, beyond conventions and obstacles. Nine dancers, with or without physical disabilities and visual impairment, create a piece verging on ‘dance epidemic’.

How are communities built? What is the use of scapegoats and the role of ritual violence? These questions inform the choreographic research, drawing on both the element of surprise and the optimism suggested by immediate experience and being present in the moment.
