Week 53 - School of Moon
ShonenDancing robots. Dancing children, Dancing adults. Children and a grown-up couple engage in a zero gravity slow moving dance on a luminous stage, by their side, robots that look like skeletons join the dance.
At least 53 ‘Pay What You Decide’ tickets have been released for all Week 53 shows!
Tickets are available online for each production (maximum two per person) – our way of rewarding the curious!
On a luminous stage, children, small robots and a grown-up couple engage themselves in a zero gravity slow moving dance.
Some imitate the others, others decide what will be the choreographic movements, some dance on their own. Is it already the self assertion of future leaders or spoiled children or charismatic personalities?
By their side, robots that look like skeletons join the dance. Mechanic and organic bodies with their blank eyes stare compose a newborn post-human fragile community, in which grown-ups are, at the same time, guides and witnesses.
‘School of Moon’ carries Shonen's mark with their works involving children. The company questions the multiplicity of the body and dance, crossing new technologies and various dance styles inspired by japanese butô, contemporary and urban dance styles.
Featuring young performers from Danceworks Ballet & Theatre School (Eccles) and Christ The King RC Primary School (Walkden).
Supported by the Institut Français Paris and “En Scène! - helping to present work across Greater Manchester by some of France's leading artists - covering all spectrums of performing arts.
Run time: 60 minutes.
