Returning to Brisbane after SOLD OUT seasons at the Brisbane Powerhouse (2019) and Perth Fringe World (2020), 100 Years Of The History Of Dance As Told By One Man In 60 Minutes With An Energetic Group Finale will be presented by Altitude Theatre at La Boite’s Roundhouse Theatre from 21 April 2021.
Bursting at the seams with fascinating facts, naughty stories and dance moves to die for, 100 Years Of The History Of Dance As Told By One Man In 60 Minutes With An Energetic Group Finale follows Jacob, a schoolboy, presenting a report on the topic of his own choice. Not to be extra or anything, but Jacob has decided to cover 100 Years of the History of Dance!
Exploring the lives of influential choreographers including Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Bob Fosse, Rudolf Nureyev, Pina Bauch, Gene Kelly and Paula Abdul, Jacob not only talks about them, but dances his way through their signature styles!
As he prepares, Jacob ponders the difference between ‘influence’ and ‘plagiarism’ and begins to question his own legacy. It’s the school report you never knew you needed…
Created by Emma Canalese and Joseph Simons, this one man show will be performed by a rotating cast of Joseph Simons, Trent Sinclair and Andrew Longo. Resident Director: Hannah Bennett. Set and Costume Designer: Adam Gardnir. Lighting Designer and Stage Manager: Genevieve Davidson.
“I was expecting 60 minutes of dance, but this show is so much more. Don’t miss the chance to be entertained, educated and captivated by this one man show.” – Arts Review
