A dancer dances, while another explains. A witty performance-lecture about the problems of dance and meaning, referencing iconic figures in contemporary dance such as Yvonne Rainer, Tatsumi Hijikata and Jerome Bel, and getting tangled in non-dance, Butoh and somatic practice. The performance involves you as a guest in a casual and humorous exploration of what dance is and can be, how it is experienced and, not least, how it can be discussed. To all of us who find dance and performance tedious at times, this is a chance to enjoy quirky reflections and insights.
