+ RE/PLAY Dance Edit
By Junnosuke Tada and with collaborator Kitamari

17 – 20 February 2016

In collaboration with Offsite Dance Project (Japan), TheatreWorks presents RE/PLAY Dance Edit by Junnosuke Tada and with collaborator Kitamari. RE/PLAY Dance Edit explores the intent and meaning of re-production through bodily repetition of physical movements. Using pop music, the performers dance until they collapse in exhaustion – and then they get up and do it again, each choreographer-dancer taking a turn at their own approach to the performance. In this production under the aegis of Tada’s direction, the very foundation and meaning of dance is examined, performance as a format is subverted, and a fresh perspective on dance and performance emerges.
