presented in association with Crying Out Loud
Something distinctive and different emerges when you mix a collective of circus artists, with a common love for urban dance, with a company of movers bridging the gap between street dance and theatre.
This company has something to say about the finger-pointing-world we live in today. They jump over the usual barriers and constraints of form by mixing it up. They have an exceptional flair for combining the unexpected with skills, music and movement. Imagine hip hop, Afrobeats and Krump with Chinese pole, Parkour and juggling, plus a bit of House and Popping to boot.
They reflect something global, hailing from Africa, Ireland, Hong Kong, Poland, Italy, Uganda, Sweden and Holland.
Blame Game was produced by Crying Out Loud following the success of Union Black (2018). Mateusz Szczerek (Ireland/Poland), Alessio Motta (Sweden/Italy) and Manu Debuck (France/Sweden) are working on Blame Game Unlimited, a new show that merges hip hop with circus to further develop towards presenting a work-in-progress showing in 2020.
Using innovative dance moves, Chinese pole and juggling, Blame Game Unlimited explores our constant search for a scapegoat. By pointing the finger at the ‘other’, those who we disagree with politically and socially, we escape our personal responsibilities.
