Idiot-Syncrasy

Dance • Tickets: $0.00

A collaboration about commitment, perseverance

and dance’s potential as an agent for change. Initially

setting out to change an increasingly austere world

through their performance, the futility and naivety of

that ambition made them feel like idiots. Calling on the

songs and dances from their respective Basque and

Sardinian folk traditions, Igor and Moreno began again

- by singing, then jumping… then jumping a lot more.

Capturing the essence of that shared act of endurance,

the show’s minimalist, repetitive choreography retains

an ancient dance’s sense of empowerment and joy while

commenting subtly and playfully on the dysfunction of

21st Century humanity.

 

We promise to persevere. We promise to be open. We

promise to do our best.
