A surreal and comic dance theatre performance for the street.
Us is a re-telling of the classic 'boy-meets-girl'. The boy, Luke, is a notoriously flirtatious, young at heart, Luke Skywalker wannabe, but it's complicated. The girl, KJ, is attention seeking, a helpless romantic, and has a love for the music of Kate Bush. Luke and KJ meet on a very ordinary day, but their meeting is anything but...
Audiences watch their story unfold from nervous beginnings to eventually falling in love. This comic and touching dance performance reveals the trials and tribulations of young love. Will they make It work? What happens next? The audience help them decide; should they stick it out or go their separate ways?
‘Us’ seeks to bridge the gap between contemporary dance and traditional street theatre. It is an accessible performance yet still challenges audiences with its unexpected twists. Expect laughter and audience participation.
Choreographed by Laura McGill and Sarah Lewis.
Performed by Luke Brown & KJ Lawson Mortimer
