Drunk On Fiction (2017)
Drunk On Fiction is a journey, a quest, a mission, an adventure and an escape. This dynamic work for six dance artists is an examination of the powerfully addictive world of fiction and fantasy. A bold and theatrical dance work that takes audiences on an emotional and imaginative journey. It reveals and speaks to the struggle for survival and purpose that we as humans, continue to battle with each day. In a way, we have all been heroes or villains at one point in our own lives. We are constantly starring in our own sagas, sequels and trilogies. Drunk On Fiction runs wild. It chases and fights it's way through worlds of fiction, to find its way to fact.
