Jean Abreu Dance & 65daysofstatic: INSIDE

I do go to a number of dance events over the course of the year but I rarely talk about them. The exception is Matthew Bourne, who I am a HUGE fan of, and whose work I am always raving about.

Today is another exception. I was at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre and I saw Jean Abreu Dance and their dance piece Inside. It was mind-blowing. I loved it. It really took my breath away. Highly highly recommended!

Jean Abreu are here:

Cut and pasted from the Southbank Centre website:

INSIDE is fiercely evocative, highly-charged dance theatre featuring five outstanding male dancers and choreography by Brazilian Jerwood Award-winner Jean Abreu.

It explores violence, incarceration, solitude and hope within prison walls - a gritty, compelling and critically acclaimed production revealing surprising tenderness within the starkness of captivity.

Joining the dancers on stage was the guitar/noise/glitch band 65daysofstatic. Fast gaining international attention for their captivating, uncompromising approach to music-making, they have sold over 100,000 albums worldwide.

I often go to the Southbank Centre. I am now going to start talking about what goes on there and so it now has its own tag.

The Umbrella Organisation welcomes the Southbank Centre!
