UK PREMIERE 

Gisèle Vienne’s background covers music, philosophy and puppeteering, while her dance work has seen her explore the crimes of a serial killer, place athletes in a forest and ghosts on an ice rink.

Opening Dance Umbrella 2019, Vienne expertly harnesses the undulating, liquid physicality of the club scene as she sets 15 mud-splattered individuals in the midst of a rave.

With a playlist put together by regular collaborator, composer Peter Rehberg and dramaturgy from writer Dennis Cooper, Vienne delves into the collective euphoria of a committed party crowd in her first work to be performed at Sadler’s Wells.
