A short lecture concert by Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion; an argument about why they do what they do, and the usefulness – or not – of the structures and scores they use. The talk is accompanied by piano music played live by Matteo Fargion, with cartoon drawings by Peter Rapp. Rebelling Against Limit was written for the Misery Of Form seminar during the German Tanzkongress in Dusseldorf earlier this year, and will be presented in public now for the first time in London. This event is a collaboration with the Centre for Performance and Creative Exchange at the University of Roehampton and marks Jonathan Burrows’ continuing role as Honorary Visiting Professor in Roehampton’s Department of Drama, Theatre and Performance.

"Occasionally feeling gloomy during some performance or other, I’ve wished that a fed-up theater goblin would whisk away the show I’m watching and deposit Burrows and Fargion in its place"
