From a scratch to a wiggle everybody can dance!
Picture the scene. A sofa pops up in a public space. What follows is a playful, interactive celebration of movement – our dancers bounce, wheel and jump, using the sofa and inspiration from the audience to challenge perceptions of who can dance. This spirited, comic piece is set to the tunes of a trombone player, donning a pink tutu!
This new piece challenges perceptions of who can dance; the performance creates an opportunity for disabled artists and young people to interact, encouraging young people to view disability and diversity in a positive way.
As part of the structure of this piece, our performers and musician erupt into varying comic set pieces. From the iconic bolero to street dance, ska to contemporary, these moments add humour, colour and attract a crowd.
Watch Sprung in action at Stockton International Riverside Festival 2016
SPRUNG is a lively and playful piece which thrives off direct interaction with our audience. It stretches the work of the company into the territory of non-verbal work and pop-up performance; enriching our existing outdoor palette whilst celebrating everybody’s ability to dance.
