Underground – Life Going Down The Tube
Performed by four of dancers within a rocking tubular structure, Underground uses stunningly physical dance, emotional imagery and surprising aerial encounters to explore the new reality of train travel: the compressed intimacy of a crowded carriage; the crush of personal space; the studied ignoring of our fellow travellers and the tight fear of a dangerous stranger in the current climate of suspicion.
Travellers are thrown together in an unlikely alliance as graffiti artists paint their love in motion. Suspended at odd angles and riding the rhythm of the train, four characters are constantly drawn together then torn apart.
Energetic and thought provoking, Underground is attention grabbing, edge of your seat, in–your-face dancing.
