Set inside a cardboard tv studio, "It’s All Real..." will glissade between precise technique and pedestrian efficiency as the performance degrades into a glitchy and unstable representation of itself.
Taking cues from reality television, talk shows, and social media, we neither represent, nor offer any solution to, contemporary life’s screen-based alienation and and anxieties. Instead we aim to unsettle the frame dividing real from fake and move through the fading illusion.
What's left at the end may be humbling and surprising.
This performance embodies DaNCEBUMS’ spirit of friendship and interdisciplinary innovation by continuing our collaboration with musical wünderkind Eric Mayson and under-the-radar visual artist/designer Matt Gorrie.
Expect humor, groove, exertion, and extreme bliss.
