Body Not Fit For Purpose
Saturday, June 20 at 7pm

Who starts or how we start seems very much to change from piece to piece.

Body Not Fit For Purpose (2014) is their first overtly political work, taking as its starting point the uselessness of dancing to express anything of any real concern and at the same time the inherent, gloriously foolish radicality of the attempt. Built on the structure of La Folia, one of Europe's earliest remembered melodies, the performance takes place at a table with Fargion's mandolin counterpointing Burrows's gestural language. Clashing an angry politic against the empty joy of dancing, unravelling the link between meaning and action this work raises questions in the midst of laughter.
