This Side Of Paradise

Dudendance presents

This Side Of Paradise

Wed 19 - Thu 20 Oct 2011 | 7.30pm | £5/£3

Experimental theatre-dance company Dudendance present a work-in-progress.

“It’s the nightmare of flawed souls with big dreams…”
James Ellroy in The Best American Noir of the Century

Inspired by the dysfunctional world of 1940s film noir, Dudendance and a young cast recreate James Ellroy’s haunting depiction of “a nightmare of flawed souls with big dreams” using improvisation, human puppetry and body morphing in this new work-in-progress.

This is an exciting opportunity to see the work at its inception, presenting segments and ideas ‘in the raw’ and providing an after-show discussion where the audience can feed back.

Dudendance are an experimental theatre company blending striking physical theatre with dance and, in particular, film. Based in Glasgow since 1986, their outlook is international, with much of their work emanating from collaborations with companies from Germany, Belgium, Canada, Brazil and beyond. Their past work, including Spaceman (part of Arches Off-Site at the Edinburgh Fringe 2009) and When Droopy Met Hal, is often site specific, and is critically lauded for its cinematic elements – in both physical sequences and narrative.
