A thought-provoking performance bringing dance, film, architecture, theatre and live music together
A double bill performance of fast paced, intricate choreography is being presented in a thought-provoking evening at Greenwich Dance, bringing ance, film, architecture, theatre and live music together.
Presented by Renaud Wiser Dance Company, it offers a critical look at our modern society, Who Killed Bambi? (London Premiere) and Metropolis will transform the majestic Borough Hall through beautiful stage design and striking imagery.
In Who Killed Bambi? the performers engage in a narrative evoking the natural hunt of a pack of wolves and a strange dinner party where the food is one of the guests. Meant as a critical look at modern society, the piece takes inspiration from recent political examples of individuals standing against the group and the subsequent hunt to silence them.
For this collaborative work between dance, theatre, music and stage design, choreographer Renaud Wiser brings together an exciting team of artists including theatre director and Royal Court Theatre international associate Richard Twyman and resident artist at the Southbank Centre and composer Oliver Coates.
Metropolis explores our complex relationship with cities and the urban environment. A cast of exceptional dancers build and tear down a landscape of bricks, constantly redefining borders in a quest for comfort, security and happiness.
Both works have been commissioned by Dance City. The company is supported by Arts Council England, Pavilion Dance South West, Greenwich Dance, Dance East, The Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation and the Swiss Cultural Fund in Britain. Produced by Lee Smikle (SmikleProject).
