Four performers playing at superheroes are caught in a series of conflicts which are both personal, and intricately political. Spiced with comic book and action hero references, their epic adventure unfolds through action-packed choreography and projected illustrations, as they question what a superhero might look like in today’s complex and troubled world? Choreographer Joseph Mercier, in collaboration with his company PanicLab, brings his latest and most ambitious creation to date to Dance City for its world premiere.
An artist led initiative based at Dance City, FRESH is an open forum for sharing and discussing new work. Artists may present work at an early stage of development in an informal studio setting.
FRESH is designed to bridge the gap between what happens in the studio and on the stage, to provide opportunity for experimentation, and to foster discussion of new work.
The event is organised by Hannah Marshall and Rachel Jean Birch, two dance artists based in the North East region. FRESH is a platform created for artists to build the foundations of new dance work, and to champion the work of artists in the region and further afield. FRESH takes place 3 times per year.
