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, a new show that merges hip hop with circus. They have been joined by the London/Hong Kong Parkour and Art de Deplacement artists Louise Wong and the Dutch Juggler Liza van Brakel to further develop the work towards premiering the show in 2020.
Using innovative dance moves, Chinese pole and juggling, Blame Game 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.
The artists have had two R&D residencies in London and Holland and have presented work in progress performances at Circusstad in Rotterdam May 2019. More residencies and partnership presentations are in the process of being arranged. Please get in touch if you are interested in being part of this. Watch this space for further details.
