DIG: Gisèle Vienne (FR) | Crowd



Dates and times

Wednesday 16 October 2019
7:30PM - 9:00PM

Part of Dance International Glasgow 


The stage is covered in soil and debris. 15 performers move together amidst a chaotic dance party. Euphoric, exhilarated, their movements are masterfully slowed down and stylised, they are a crowd, but each dancer is also an individual with their own narrative. Moments of love and violence, intimacy and aversion emerge amid the collective frenzy. The audience is invited to ‘compose’ their experience of the Crowd by choosing whose unfolding stories they choose to follow, in a piece which explores the relationship between individual and collective emotions. The spectacular and powerful performance is the latest by renowned choreographer Gisèle Vienne.

ACCESS: Both performances will be Audio Described by EJ McHenry. This production is particularly good for Subpacs
