Blame Game

Human Collective (Ireland) and Rough Connections (Sweden) present in association with Crying Out Loud

Blame Game Unlimited

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.

These two companies have 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.

En-mass they reflect something global, hailing from Africa, Ireland, Hong Kong, Poland, Italy, Uganda, Sweden and Holland.

More details to be released about workshops and sessions and how to take part in the production.

Blame Game is produced by Crying Out Loud and is conceived and devised by Mateusz Szczerek and Alessio Motta following their part in UNION BLACK, a project for Circus 250 funded by Creative Europe for which circus and street dance merged to talk about Brexit. It was presented in Ireland at Cork Midsummer Festival 2018. This new show is supported by Subtopia Sweden; PPCM, Paris; CircusStad Rotterdam and 101 creation Space Newbury, UK.
