CHOREOCRACY

Thu 22 Nov 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 12+

A new dance & technology collaboration that puts YOU in control more than ever before… RecordBreaking Dance Artist Tim Casson and BAFTA award-winning Digital Artist Seb Lee-Delisle, present their first collaboration: CHOREOCRACY: The fun interactive dance show that puts the audience in control of the performance. Seb and Tim will be your guides through the show, and using innovative mobile technology, will give you control over the three highly skilled dance performers in real-time -with no experience of dance required. Find out what happens when we ask the public what would make a good show, decide what you do or don’t want to see, and have your say about what the dancers do next: as we explore whether a dance performance can be truly democratic…

Commissioned by DanceEast and Supported by Theatre Delicatessen, South East Dance, and Studio Wayne McGregor through the FreeSpace Programme.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

“Casson is a choreographic provocateur in the way he blurs the distinction between audience and performerby combining or inverting the two”
