Performed by four dancers in a rocking tubular structure, Underground uses stunningly physical dance, poignant imagery and surprising aerial encounters, exploring the intimacy of a crowded carriage, the crush of personal space, the studied ignoring of our fellow humans and the fear of a dangerous stranger. 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 dancing. Winner of the Audience Prize at Miramiro Festival, Ghent, 2009.
Premiered 18 May 2008, Brighton Festival, UK.
